THIS Fisherman Noticed A Strange Log On The Lake. As He Approached He Realized THIS Desperate Creature Was Drowning!

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.

THIS Dog Holds Bread Under Her Mouth At The Lake. What She Pulls Out Of The Water Is UNTHINKABLE!

image via –

There are lots of smart dogs out there in the world and one of them is named Rani. She is a lovable Golden Retriever who happens to also be a service dog in training. She was undoubtedly picked for the profession because of her intelligence, as she’s clearly one smart puppy. Beyond brains, Rani also possesses a few other key qualities that will make her a great service dog one day, patience and focus.

Those two things are on display in this awesome footage of her fishing. Yes, that last line is correct. She enjoys fishing and, as you can see in this video clip, she’s really good at it! According to the information provided by her owner on the post, she has “caught dozens of fish as well as some turtles.”

That’s quite an impressive feat for a dog who can’t even use a pole or net. Instead, Rani uses bread as bait to lure unsuspecting fish closer to her. She wades chest deep into the water and then sits completely still and as motionless as possible. The bread floats soggily on the surface all around, right under her nose and mouth, as she intently stares down into the water below.

Then, when the time is just right, she expertly snatches a fish right out of the water with one lightning quick move. She is a better fisherdog than any of the fishermen I know!

In this clip she ended up catching a bluegill and she is pleased as punch about it. Right after she snagged it a woman’s voice can be heard in the background saying “She got one, it’s a big one.” Then Rani walks back along the dock, proudly swishing her fluffy tail as she goes, with her catch securely held in her mouth. What a sweet, smart, beautiful dog!

This Cat Walks Up To The Water Real Slow. But His Next Move Causes Everyone To Start Laughing!

image via –

When you go fishing it can be really hit or miss. Sometimes the fish are biting and take the bait right off the bat, but that’s very rare. Most of the time you can expect to spend hours waiting to catch one and even then nothing may come of it. You have to have patience, if you lack it all of the special lures, tackle, and bait mean nothing.

It also helps to have a natural instinct for knowing where to fish. One little kitty proved that he had both patience and a killer instinct when he was captured on film scouting out fish by bystanders. While the exact location where the footage was shot is unknown, the skinny gray and white cat in it was described by the user who uploaded it, MrTheoktay, as being a “street cat.”

The little cat can be seen on some rocks at the water’s edge watching the fish just beyond reach attentively. The cat’s focus is unwavering as he stalks his unsuspecting prey, and if he truly is a street cat then catching one is vital to his survival because who knows when or where he’ll get his next meal from.

There are several points in the video where it looks as if the cat is about to go for a fish, but when he actually does make his move it’s lightning quick and deadly accurate. Like an expert, he gets it on the first try and barely even gets his paws wet. When he turns and walks away from the water there’s a sizable fish grasped firmly in his mouth, mission accomplished!

The crowd gathered beyond the camera’s view who were watching the kitty erupted in laughter and a few expressed shock and disbelief at the unexpected sight. They now all have one heck of a fishing tale to tell their friends and families. While the sight of a cat fishing may be uncommon, cats are natural born fish catchers and everyone knows the fondness they feel for seafood flavored treats.

When a cat fishes it will usually tap the water’s surface lightly with a paw, mimicking the movement and look of a bug. Fish go up to investigate and that creates the perfect opportunity to strike out and grab one. It’s just another clever, smart thing that cats do naturally and instinctively.

He Thinks He’s About To Catch A Normal Fish. But What He Pulls Up Is An Unexpected Surprise!

Anyone who has spent some time with fisherman have heard stories about the biggest fish they almost caught. The stories usually go like this, “For hours I was reeling him in, then right at the last second, the monster broke away.” The ‘Big Fish’ stories are legendary and always fun to listen to but with today’s technology we can now capture these incredible moments on our smartphones and cameras to see the proof of these tales!

In the following video, a man in a kayak was fishing in Cape Coral, Florida. This place is known as the fishing capitol of the world. Fisherman travel from far and wide to catch everything from deep sea fishing to freshwater canals, and everything in between.

What this man pulls out of the water is larger than an NBA player.  He reels in an enormous Goliath fish!  This is the same fish that King David defeated in the bible.  This particular fish was over 7 feet and weighed 552 pounds.  This is thought to be the largest fish ever caught on a small kayak.

This species of fish is protected under law and was later released, after it was weighed and measured.  Enjoy the video and let us know about the size of biggest fish you ever caught!

Fisherman Is Reeling In A Huge Halibut. But He Never Saw This Deep Sea Thief Coming!

Most Sportsmen and women love to talk about the highlights of their chosen sport. Golfers talk about their best handicap, tennis players their greatest shot or match, and fishermen love to brag about their biggest catch. They sometimes exaggerate a bit about the actual size of the fish, but today with so many moments of our lives being videoed, the truth is verifiable!

For the fisherman in the video you are about to watch, the fact that the camera caught what happens to his prize catch, was certainly fortunate. Otherwise it might have sounded like one of those stories that gets exaggerated. His catch was stolen by an unlikely and amazing thief!

He was reeling in a huge halibut when out of nowhere a wily orca swooped in to grab his catch. He might have been more irritated, except that getting to see the magnificent orca close up was so exciting! Catching this on video was the ultimate prize that he got to share with all his friends and the rest of the world on the internet. It was certainly a highlight of his fishing life!
