In his first endeavor as bait, Stan suddenly realized he was overboard without having donned his quick-strike rig. In fact, he wasn't even attached to a line.

"My lawyer wants to meet with you," said my soon-to-be ex-wife as she unexpectedly pushed me from our boat, the Happy Hooker.

This was the last picture taken on Cody Hammer's GoPro3 before the housing cracked that fateful day .... and is now prominently displayed in his living room as a testament to the eerie fascination shared by boys and their toys ...

When the last can of his delicious ice cold beer went overboard. He decided to dive in after it.

At that moment, I knew... It was going to be me or the sharks. And it Damn sure wasn't going to be me.

If I don't cut myself before I jump in it's over too quick, got to make it sporting...

Realizing that he only had moments before the sharks moved in for the kill, Joe makes a last-ditch attempt to hold them at bay using the Force.

This is the picture that comes to mind when my wife asks me to clean the shower/tub!

I hope that Kindle is waterproof, the last thing I want to do is hear her talking about The View and her deer ravaged garden for the last few hours we have on the water.

I don't know how this is going to work but up here on cape cod we don't have big catfish. So I am going to try shark noodling. "Hey fishy fishy! come bight my hand, this won't hurt you. Don't be scared." These were toms last words before being in the next episode of Shark Week.

As soon as I hit the water, I saw the circling sharks! I weighed my options: Topside, a fast-approaching speedboat with Ingrid Newkirk behind the wheel; below, a whole pack of the most fearsome predator in the ocean! I pointed myself toward the bottom and kept on swimming.

So you can’t lip a shark. But you know, my missing finger is not going to dive for itself.

Two years ago, I was doing some offshore fishing off the coast of Florida. One of the other guys on the boat caught a nice Amberjack, so I was helping him take it off the line. The fish swallowed the hook, so I pulled out my pocket knife to cut the line. Right as I went to cut the line, the Amberjack jumped and caused me to knick my wrist. Right as this happened, I slipped and fell off the back of the boat. I fell straight into shark infested waters, only to be rescued almost immediately by our captain. It was one experience I will never forget

It was this moment, after my wife threw me from the boat, I should have never complained that she made me turkey instead of a ham sandwich.
