Fishing Under Ice [The Original Video]

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.

Amazing!

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?

Enjoy.

Shocked Angler Catches A Freshwater Redfish In Downtown Houston!

Have you ever caught a freshwater redfish?

And I don’t mean “brackish” water redfish, I’m talking pretty much pure freshwater.

Although it’s obviously not as common as catching a redfish near the mouths of where freshwater meets saltwater, redfish have been known to venture past the brackish blends and be found alongside bass and bluegills.

Check out the experience the “Texas Redfish Hunter” recently had while trying to catch bass.

The irony was he had been out in the saltwater the past few trips and was skunked when it came to catching reds.

Pretty awesome.

Enjoy.

Bass Caught On Topwater Plug While Trolling With A Drone!

“Holy Crabapples!”

“Holy Cows!”

These were some of the classic lines that Viva Frei used in the video below after he landed his largest bass ever… all while trolling with a drone.

Wait until you see the topwater strike that happened within seconds of him trolling in Lake Chaplain.

It’s a pretty decent bass, and certainly one that Viva won’t forget.

Love seeing someone get this excited about catching a fish.

Enjoy.

Largemouth Bass Misses Worm And Attacks GoPro Instead!

It’s a fact.

Largemouth bass will eat just about anything…

However, as you will see in the video below, this big bass didn’t seem to like the taste of a GoPro. In fact, the bass had some trouble trying to swallow the GoPro and kept backing up and taking another shot at the moving worm.

Make sure you stick around until the end because the guy filming this actually catches the bass. He estimated it was an 11lb bass (even though all of the haters in the comments say it was under 10lbs).

Either way, awesome catch and amazing footage from the bank of a lake.

Enjoy.

Anglers Attempt To Lift A Man Attached To A Medium-Heavy Fishing Rod Using A Forklift!

Have you ever wanted to test the strength of your fishing rod?

Well, not only did these guys go to some extreme lengths to test their “Catch The Fever” fishing rod, but they strapped the rod on a forklift and attempted to lift a dude up!

And it wasn’t some big-game rod meant for 1000 pound marlin that has no bend, this is a 7’6 medium-heavy fishing rod meant to catch catfish (as you will see, it has ALOT of bend to it).

Of course, these “Catch The Fever” fishing rods aren’t meant for just small catfish, but even a 100-pound catfish isn’t going to have a chance to snap this rod!

Check out the bend in this thing when the forklift gets up to the top!

Holy unbreakable fishing rod.

Check it out.

Here’s What 4,000 Pounds Of Trout Coming Out Of A Truck Looks Like!

When you see a trout stocking truck pull up to your favorite fishing hole, one thing is for certain…

Grab your fishing rod and be the first one to get a lure in front of these trout’s faces!

These farm-raised trout don’t even know what an artificial fishing lure is yet, so why not be the first to show them? Haha.

Pretty cool seeing so many trout shoot out in 90 seconds.

These things are so excited to be out of the tank in the truck that some of them are shooting up the boat ramp!

This is Lake Mission Viejo in California and the company that stocks the trout is Mount Lassen Trout Inc.

Enjoy.

Watch This Girl Rip Up A Nice Catfish With Her Hands!

Normally we save the freshwater fishing videos for “Freshwater Friday”, but this one was too good to wait.

And with lines like, “That one right there is going to be good in some grease”, you will know why this video is going viral.

If you have never seen catfish noodling before, then you are missing out on one of the South’s most entertaining freshwater activities. Heck, there is even a TV show about it.

You simply place your hand in a catfish hole, wait for the catfish to bite down on your hand/forearm, and then grip it and rip it out.

Pa-POW!

Check out the fish this girl pulls up. Well done!

Fish Strong!
