Underwater bridge fishing, might be a new sport, and it might catch on.
Peter Miller and Jeff Stillwell head out to an manmade reef for what they are dubbing underwater bridge fishing. Watch as they stand on the catwalk, intent on hooking fish underwater using regular poles.
As you just saw, these guys had a successful time underwater bridge fishing as Yellowtail, snapper, grouper, and blue runner were some of the species they caught.
Did you see that barracuda hammer the fish that Jeff had hooked up? The fish saw the opportunity as a free meal and didn't hesitate to take advantage.
One of the keys to this activity was being tethered to the bridge, and the other crucial part was having enough bait. Although this underwater bridge fishing adventure was an experiment, they knew to take precautions and maintain safety above all else.
