I Love Fishing, But Probably Not Enough to Dive in After One

When did it become the norm to jump in after fish?

I'll be the first to say there's nothing worse than catching a fish and losing it right at the boat. But has anyone heard of a net?

For whatever reason, it's become weirdly common to see anglers jump in the water after fish. So, for your own viewing pleasure, we decided to go through and pick out some of the better ones we've seen as of late.

Which one of these guys has the best form in your opinion?

Man, he barely grabbed that in time, but he went for the full dive without any hesitation.

Imagine standing on an expensive bass boat and being so pumped about a fish that you just completely abandon your vessel to seal the deal. Additionally, this guy has terrific form, and seemingly had no problem whatsoever hauling this toad back aboard.

Grab that fish

Don't lose your grip

Here we have one that's a little less graceful. In fact, this guy didn't mean to fall in the water at all. However, we have to give credit where credit is due, as he did get the fish in the boat!

Fortunately he wasn't trying to reach down for a shark when he went overboard, otherwise this video might have a few less laughs.

This one's been around for a little while now, but this still has to be one of the best videos of the year.

First of all, if we're talking form, this guy didn't even have to jump in, so obviously he takes home the gold. Second, look at the size of that bass! Of all fish for this to happen with, it's 10 times better that it was an absolute hog of a largemouth.

Which one is your favorite?
