For many people, a day well spent is day spent fishing.  For them, even a bad day of fishing is better than a good day of work.  If you’re an avid fisherman, then you know the feeling and one Pennsylvania man was feeling the lure of the open water, so he headed out to one of his favorite spots.

Brad Meck decided to take a fishing trip to Raystown Lake, a reservoir in Huntingdon County Pennsylvania, one weekend in late May.  He chose a secluded area called James Creek and cast his line hoping for something good to bite. As he settled in Brad noticed something moving in the water.  At first, he simply assumed it was a fallen tree bobbing and floating along. As the supposed log came closer however, he saw that it was covered in brown fur. At that point, he thought it must be a beaver, after all it was in the middle of a huge body of water.

Upon closer inspection, it dawned on him that the animal swimming towards his boat was in fact a baby bear!  The poor cub was struggling to stay afloat and was so exhausted that he could barely keep his nose out of the water.  Realizing the dire situation the bear cub was in, Brad had only seconds to decide whether to save him or not.

Thankfully, he did come to the bears rescue and reached down to haul the utterly exhausted baby bear out of the water.  For a split second the thought crossed his mind that the bear might bite him, but as he placed him in the boat any worries that he had disappeared.  The cub was simply grateful to be saved and showed no ill will towards Brad. It was so exhausted that all it could do was sit down and rest.

At this point Brad switched gears and started thinking about what he should do next.  Being in such a remote area, he had no cell service and couldn’t call anyone for advice, so he turned to common sense.  He’d seen the direction the cub had been headed in and assumed it had been following its mother when it fell behind crossing the lake.  He decided to head off in that direction and when he reached the shore, he let his passenger off. The bear cub departed and scurried up the bank into the woods, but not before stopping briefly to glance back at Brad.  It’s as if he was saying thank you and goodbye to the man who had saved him.

Now that’s one of the best fishing stories anyone has ever heard told.  Brad went angling for fish, caught a wild bear cub, and saved its life without any harm coming to either of them.

THIS Guy Thought He Was Reeling In His First Fish of The Day. But Watch THIS Water Underneath Closely!

Fishing for largemouth bass is a hugely popular sport in The United States of America. Each year it draws an estimated thirty million people to the banks of fresh water ponds, rivers, ponds, and lakes. What makes largemouth bass fishing so appealing to many is that the big fish will make you work hard to catch em’ and fight you every step of the way to the very last second!

When a giant bass takes the bait it is not an easy reel em’ in kind of job, it is more like a prepare for a mega battle type of situation. The bass will do all sorts of tricks, maneuvers and techniques to attempt to get away! Many will even fling their slippery oily bodies into the air in a desperate last chance attempt to escape from the Fisherman’s hook.

This is why so many fishermen and anglers love casting their lines in the hope that a mythically largemouth bass will grab the bait and thus bring a once in a lifetime experience into their day!

To see exactly how powerful, agile aggressive and big-mouthed these bass are, watch the accompanying video of one in action. The video was caught by an unknown fisherman who was using bait to tempt and lure the aquatic beasts at a deep green fishing water hole.

He reels the tinier fish along the top of the water and then suddenly a giant blurry monster can be seen moving up out of the depths from below the waters surface. Moments later the huge fish appears, mouth open wide, and devours the poor little baitfish swallowing it whole in one bite. And this is why they are known as largemouth bass..

There was no hesitation on the fish’s part in going in for the tasty treat because they are the apex predator of these waters. When you are at the top of the food chain it means that only humans can catch them, and even then most of the largemouth bass that are reeled in end up getting released back into the waters.

Many of the larger ones are breeding females and it’s common practice to release them because they are the future of the sport and sustainability is key. It’s both morally and culturally looked down upon to keep a huge female fish and to do so goes against the unspoken rule of bass fishing!

Also, in many locations it is also illegal to take fish of a certain size. Plus, their meat is not really good to eat. It’s kind of fishy, slimy and mushy. It is not as high a quality compared to the other fish it lives with in its habitat, that you can catch just as easily. So if the one in this video was caught, it was likely also released.

A Giant Whale Kept Swimming Up To These Guys. Then They Realized Something Was Seriously Wrong!

Two young fisherman from Australia recently had an amazing run in with an enormous whale while out on their boat. Seventeen year old Michael Riggio and his friend Ivan Iskenderian were returning from a fishing trip in Middle Harbour, which is north of Sydney, when a whale swam up to them.

At first the boys were surprised and amazed that a whale was coming in so close to shore and the boat. It repeatedly poked the tip of its barnacle speckled head up out of the water and even nudged the boat several times.

As the whale continued acting more and more atypical another fisherman took notice. Ron Kovacs was in a boat across from the boys and started to record the strange scene. The whale circled the watercraft and swam underneath it a few times before it resumed poking its head out of the water. That’s when the boys realized the reason for the whale’s uncharacteristic behavior; it needed help.

In its mouth was a tangled mess of fishing wire and several plastic bags that had gotten stuck. The unwelcome garbage was clearly aggravating the whale and it wanted it removed. Iskenderian sprung into action and leaned out as far as he could when the whale neared the boat.

He managed to snag the trash and free the whale from having it stuck in his mouth. As he was doing that, Riggio whipped out his cell phone and used the scene as a backdrop for some selfies. He ended up capturing and preserving the incredible, unbelievable, once in a lifetime moment and shared it with the world.

After the wire and plastic had been removed the whale happily swam off to deeper waters. As it glided out to sea it slapped its fin on the water’s surface, as a way to show appreciation and say thanks to the people who helped it out. The man recording the video, Ron Kovacs, summed it up best when he later wrote on his Facebook page “He was very enquisitive and more interested in us.

You could see that big eye coming out watching us. They are not dumb for sure.” He is 100% correct, whales are far more intelligent and clever than most humans ever give them credit for. They say the eyes are the window to the soul, and when Kovacs looked into the whale’s eye he saw a peaceful, smart, wise, and gentle creature who needed a little help. Once the whale received that help, it expressed thanks and continued on its way.
