As a Floridian, I can barely comprehend ice fishing, let alone fishing under the ice.
But thanks to the crazy “fishing Finns” I now have a pretty good idea what it’s like to fish under the ice.
This video is nuts!
If you watch carefully you will understand just how much time and effort went into capturing all of this.
Filming upside down means they are fighting gravity and buoyancy all while trying to stay balanced.
It definitely messed with my mind.
Here is the explanation from MentalFloss:
“When you notice that the air bubbles “fall down,” you’ll realize these divers are actually walking upside down on the underside of the ice on a frozen lake. This becomes possible when they inflate their gear with air, which increases their buoyancy and makes them go up. A little fine tuning, and they can simulate gravity upside down. They can do that as long as they have air in their bottles, because the water pressure around them is supporting their entire bodies from all sides.”
What did you think of it?
Let me know in the comments.
