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.

This Is What Happens When A Paddleboarder Tries To Steal A Dolphin’s Wave!

Every surfer knows that you never steal someone else’s wave…

And if you do, prepared to get slammed off of your board!

Check out what happens when a dolphin is riding a wave and sees a paddleboarder in his way!

Good thing these dolphin have lightning fast reflexes or this paddleboarder could have seriously been hurt. By the way, did you notice how the dolphin is basically curving his body in mid-air to avoid seriously hurting the guy?

Pretty awesome!

Big thanks to Jason Luongo of Southern Fin Apparel for sending this one over.

These Fishermen Wake Up One Of The Largest Schools Of SQUID Ever Caught On Film!

Can you say “Calamari” for years?

These California anglers were only about 1 mile off of La Jolla, CA when they came across one of the largest schools of squid they had ever seen.

According to the fishermen, they were in 80 feet of water, and shortly after seeing some squid they lit up the water with their high-powered lights on board, and then they “woke up” this unbelievable school of squid.

They estimate that it was 50 tons of squid in that school from their experience with squid fishing.

Wowzers!

This Guy Attempts To Land A Mako Shark From A Paddleboard With A Fly Rod!

Apparently Ryan Sansoucy and Conway Bowman didn’t watch the video on our website about why you NEVER want to hook a Mako Shark near your boat…

(It was called, “This Is Why You NEVER Want To Hook A Mako Shark Next To Your Boat” – you can watch it here)

These guys are NUTS!

As if there wasn’t already enough challenge in landing the powerful and high-flying Mako Sharks, Ryan and Conway decided to try it while on a stand-up paddleboard (SUP)… all while using a fly rod.

The only positive thing they had in their favor was that the Mako Sharks around them were not 500lb+ beasts, but still an incredibly wild fishing experience nonetheless.

Just imagine how fast your heart would be beating when the mako shark is right up next to your paddleboard and you are attempting your first release!

Would you do this?

Let us know in the comments.

Wait til’ You See What This Monster Goliath Grouper Does Just Inches Away From This Diver!

This is Why You Should Always Watch Out For Goliath Grouper After Spearing A Fish!

I won’t ruin it for you, but let’s just say most of us would have soiled our wetsuit…

I watched this over a few times and it is crazy how close the Goliath comes to the diver’s hand!

Not sure if he saw it coming or not, but either way, if you have ever been in the water next to these monster fish, you know they can be intimidating.

My brother Luke and I had a run in with a big Goliath just a few weeks in Islamorada, and I can assure you that you never want one of those beastly fish getting aggressive next to you.

Drone Captures Awesome Shark Footage Right Next To A Group Of Unsuspecting Surfers!

Now it should come as no surprise that if you go out in the ocean, you might see a shark.

In fact, you might be just a few meters away from a shark like the surfer in this video below and have no idea…

As the funny Will Ferrell “Anchorman” meme that was getting spread around earlier this year said, “This Just In, There Are Sharks In The Ocean…”
sharks caught on drone

Either way, no matter how many times you tell yourself the sharks are more scared of you that we are of them, it is easy to forget that when you see a monster shark next to you in the water.

And I don’t think many of us realize just  how close we come to big sharks while out in the saltwater…

But the one thing we all have to keep in mind is that 99% of sharks out there are just curious. We are intruding on their turf, not the other way around.

And if you are surfing or snorkeling in shark infested areas, just make sure there is always some slower than you around…

Enjoy the drone footage from Pismo Beach, California.

Why This “Pier Angler” Might Be The Most Accurate Caster In The World!

So you thought everyone in San Diego is always friendly because of the near-perfect weather?

Well think again!

Apparently nothing ticks off a serious angler (especially a pier angler) more than a noisy drone flying over them and disturbing their peaceful time fishing…

Regarding the subject of drones flying near anglers, let us know your thoughts in the comment section.

Because on one hand, a drone can capture some of the most amazing aerial fishing footage like it did the in the fishing music video, “Fishing In Our Soul” (watch that here). And 15 years ago, the only way to get the unbelievable aerial footage for a music video like that was to hire a helicopter for the day. So on a personal level, we greatly appreciate drone footage here at Salt Strong.

On the other hand, I can see where some anglers don’t like drones around when they are fishing. Drones can be very noisy and distracting when they come in at close range, and when out of range, most people don’t like to feel like they are being spied on from up above.

But regardless of who is right and who is wrong in this video, one thing is for certain…

This angler has AMAZING AIM!

This Is Why You NEVER Want To Hook A Mako Shark Next To Your Boat!

FACT: Mako Sharks hate being hooked

FACT: Mako Sharks jump clear out of the water and do backflips when hooked to try and break off

FACT: You do NOT want to be close to a Mako Shark when it is jumping…

I won’t ruin this amazing video below, but let’s just say these anglers got an up close view of a Mako Shark doing some amazing aerial work…

Count the jumps…

One!

Two!

Three!

Four!

FYI, they were fishing off Huntington Beach, CA.

You’ve Got To See This Guy Spear A Yellowfin Tuna From A Marina Dock!

I didn’t even know this was legal…

I didn’t think you could use a speargun out of the water OR spear a fish inside of a nice marina basin like this? But I guess those are Florida rules…

But either way, pretty wild stuff.

It’s not every day that you get a chance to spear a Yellowfin Tuna off of a marina dock like this, so if it was legal, I certainly can’t blame the guy for taking the shot.

The notes say that this was in Dana Point, California (where I presume they have different spearfishing laws than Florida).

And here is a Disclaimer from the YouTube Video:

Disclaimer: Shooting a finfish without being in the water and swimming is illegal. We do not condone illegal activity. This was posted not to celebrate the catch, but to show the unusual event of a yellowfin tuna in the Dana Point Harbor.

The Big Question: Assuming you shot this nice Yellowfin Tuna, would you eat it?

I have to imagine that the fish doesn’t exactly have a “Natural” diet if it is living or spending a bunch of time in a marina basin. Can you say “Poo Particles”! Haha.
