You just never know what’s lurking below the ice. Check out this video of a fisherman’s bass barely escaping the attack of a musky.
Often called “the fish of 10,000 casts,” musky are notoriously finicky and difficult to entice in for a strike. That doesn’t mean they aren’t a worthy predator though.
Watch below as a fisherman peers through his ice hole and films the impressive speed of a musky taking a shot at his catch as it’s pulled through the ice.
With his partner preparing a meal, the successful fisherman cranks on his reel, ready to add another bass to the small bounty of fish collecting in the corner of his ice shack. Just as his catch reaches the surface however, a rather large musky can be seen swooping at the bass from below.
As the fisherman cheers in shock and astonishment the bass lingers at the surface but in true musky fashion, the big predator never returns.
Yet another good reason why you shouldn’t put your toes in ice water.
