    Huge Wave Nearly Knocks Cod Fishing Crew Off Ship-0

    by

    Here’s living proof that your job is easy.

    These guys were cod potting, trapping cod in a large netted enclosure or “pot,” in Alaskan waters when a crushing wave throws the full wrath of nature upon them. The men are washed away like some anatomically correct bath toys only to right themselves and get back to work.

    Me?

    I’d be off camera holding on for dear life while crying through every prayer I know.

    Here’s to you cod potters! You’re far tougher men than I am.

    Damage to Washington's Stillaguamish River Could Last for Decades After Mudslide-0

    by

    The massive mudslide in Washington has done untold ecological damage to Stillaguamish River, one of the best-known salmon and steelhead rivers in the Northwest.

    The most severe damage comes to the river itself. More than 45 miles of the once pristine river is now stained dark from silt. Waters stand almost stagnant as the mudslide formed a dam that blocks water from moving. A pumping system installed to aid in search efforts spews a constant stream of sewage and chemicals escaped from devastated homes and capsized automobiles.

    Video: Huge Elk Herd Jumps Fence to Cross Road in Montana-0

    by

    Austin Stonnell recorded video of this massive herd of elk about a block from his home in Bozeman, Mont., on March 26.

    Stonnell, a Washington native studying chemical engineering at Montana State University, said he has no idea how many elk were in the herd but he estimates it was well over 200.

    “It was just a spectacular sight,” Stonnell told me over the phone. “I’ve never seen anything like that but then I’ve only lived in Montana for six months.”

    Video: Man Wrestles Hammerhead Shark to Save Hooked Tarpon-2

    by

    There’s a fine line between bravery and stupidity. Truth be told, I can see plenty of both in this clip.

    A gigantic tarpon is being reeled in when an even larger hammerhead shark appears from the depths of Boca Grande Pass, Fla., for an easy meal. Captain Bo Johnson of the DBo Show intervenes by grabbing the shark’s dorsal fin in an attempt to save the tarpon. A melee of sea foam and thrashing water ensues but in the end the tarpon is saved.

    Florida Anglers Land 720-Pound Mako Shark While Fishing Cobia Tournament-0

    by

    A group of anglers dead-set on winning a cobia tournament opted to battle a 700-pound mako shark instead.

    Randy Messer and friends had already landed a 40-pound cobia off Destin, Fla. when they spotted a goliath mako cruising just 15 feet below the surface. Messer tossed a live bait into the water and the two-hour battle began. The 700-pound apex predator fought for all its might; breaching the surface, flipping into the air, and towing the 40-foot Sure Lure two miles further out to sea.

    Video: The Rattlesnake Den-1

    by

    Perhaps it’s the warmer weather. Or maybe spring turkey season. Or simply the fact that some people get off on snakes.

    Who knows why anyone would search for a video showing about a zillion rattlesnakes slithering through the high grass of Montana and into a literal hell hole of serpents, but search someone did and now that initial pastime has turned a clip first posted in 2010 viral.

    Giant, Man-Eating Crocodile Captured in Uganda-1

    by

    A crocodile that has been blamed for killing four people on Lake Victoria in Uganda has been captured and if reports are correct, the beast could be the largest of its kind in captivity.

    According to Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) Sulani Tumanya the behemoth weighs more than a ton (about 2,300 pounds) and measures 18 feet in length, according to the New Zealand Herald. The previous record holder for largest known crocodile was a 21-foot-long, 1-ton saltwater crocodile named Lolong. That beast was captured in the Philippines and died at the age of 50 just last year.
