A normal day of fishing took an unexpected turn for two men in Lapeer, Michigan.
One man was reeling in a bass he had just caught, then both of them spotted another creature trying to steal the fish.
In the video below, posted on June 25, 2017, one of the fishermen starts recording the bass — and the pike that had latched onto its tail.
The man filming laughs in disbelief, saying, “No way! We’ve got a pike eating a bass. Oh my God. That never happens, that’s so funny.”
The pike clings onto the bass as the men watch intently. Either the pike isn’t making a move, or he just can’t seem to get the bass off the hook.
One man repositions the fishing line to see if he can wiggle the bass free, but the hungry pike isn’t letting go for anything.
The fishermen see just how strong of a grip the pike has on the bass and wonder if he is just going to keep himself latched onto the catch.
The pike loses his grip when the fisherman swirls the fishing line to the side, but quickly races over and chomps on the bass’ tail again.
The determined fisherman makes one last attempt to reel in the bass and pulls on his fishing rod, causing both fish to flop onboard his boat.
Now that’s a great catch!
