According to the Associated Press, eighty-one-year-old Don Minnaert fell fifteen feet into the frigid waters of Hennepin Canal when he refused to cut his line against a monster bass.
Minnaert was actually targeting panfish last May 13 in his native Geneseo, Illinois when he tumbled into the canal. He had just hooked a small fish with his ultra light rig when a bass took his catch and plowed for deeper waters.
Minnaert said the bass fought so well that he failed to pay attention to much else and ended up plummeting into the canal. Once in the waters, it took him several harrowing moments and many slips beneath the surface before he was able to escape. Unfortunately, the bass got away during the melee.
