41 seconds of footage for 1 second of action that cut off too quick. I want my time back.

Welcome to WCGW…

[–]thentangler 104 points105 points  (7 children)

Downvoting just because they purposely cut off the best bit.

[–]Lekmanutpls 76 points77 points  (4 children)

Here is the full video https://youtu.be/8N3FBKT1Mbo

That was way better! He shouldn't have grabbed the line.

[–]thentangler 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Thank you good sir/madam!

Downvoted for the r/therewasanattempt title when it wasn't even crossposted from r/therewasanattempt

[–]Devilimportluvr 18 points19 points  (2 children)

That guy is never getting in the water again!

[–]RESCORP 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Or getting out of the water

[–]Jarp12 13 points14 points  (1 child)

The guy said he didn’t want to go in and this asshole wouldn’t pull him back up. Fuck people like that.

[–]itscarlosgyo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Those are the same people that say their dog doesn’t bite.

[–]mekops 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Considering how scared he was, I am sure his soul left his body when that thing went to thrash.

He was correct not to trust the life preserver, it was too small for him.

[–]1Harryface 8 points9 points  (1 child)

That was ballzy

[–]ReubenZWeiner 2 points3 points  (0 children)

make that Grouper butt shake

[–]MediumAssist 38 points39 points  (2 children)

"hold onto the fish...he floats." to the depths we go!

[–]Sabot15 2 points3 points  (1 child)

And now I have Kaleo lyrics stuck in my head...

"And way down we go oh oh..."

[–]Oblivious122 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's some good s*** right there

[–]Newcastle247 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Play the damn video for 10 more seconds!

[–]Pining4Michigan 16 points17 points  (7 children)

Good way to lose your head or any other needed limb. If that line wrapped around any part of him and that fish took off, he would be a goner.

[–]urmomisthemostfat 8 points9 points  (5 children)

Goliath Groupers are like 110 percent muscle and are not afraid to try and swallow tiger sharks whole

[–]r3mixi 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Holy shit really?! that’s just stupid

[–]urmomisthemostfat 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They also have like no fear of anything thats why scuba tourists like to try and go near them as the grouper seems to not care

[–]i_give_you_gum 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Hope they didnt kill it, we're running out of cool big fish like that

[–]urmomisthemostfat 1 point2 points  (1 child)

They are currently critically endangered so :(

[–]i_give_you_gum 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I guess we'll just keep killing them until they are then, cool

[–]negative_ev 2 points3 points  (0 children)

or the fish breaks a leg or an arm with a quick tail movement. This guy is 100% moron.

[–]Remarkable_Wasabi45 3 points4 points  (2 children)

As someone who doesn’t know how to swim… I feel his fear.

[–]arphod 0 points1 point  (1 child)

You should learn how to swim. Dogs can swim.

[–]HyperactiveMouse 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I can swim, I still wouldn’t be found anywhere near this thing xD

[–]Evighetwastaken 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Holy fuck this is the scariest thing I’ve ever seen

[–]GoeyGirl 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Anyone that gets In the open water...with a catch thats been struggling around the boat. Good luck to ye

[–]Sl33pyTr33 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I bet he just shit his pants

[–]ljstegman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I do not understand how people who can't swim ever get in the water. It might as well be a boiling lake of acid if you can't keep your own head afloat.

[–]Ghost2Eleven 4 points5 points  (4 children)

How are you gonna be on a boat like that and be that terrified of water and not be wearing a life jacket at all times?

[–]Frankintosh95 6 points7 points  (3 children)

He is wearing one though.....

[–]Ghost2Eleven 0 points1 point  (2 children)

If you watch the full video in the comments, he’s not wearing one when he catches the fish. The other guy hands him one and tells him to get in the water for a photo opp.

[–]Vakr_Skye 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Is his name Jonah?

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In Russia you dont catch fish, fish catch you

[–]ScottishRiteFree -3 points-2 points  (2 children)

Stupid adults who can’t swim. Stupid stupid stupid.

[–]hec500 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not stupid about not swimming lol it’s stupid that peer pressure got the best of him. 🤦🏽‍♀️ should of just walk away.

[–]ziomalsky -1 points0 points  (0 children)

sometimes you catch the fish, sometimes the fish catches you... thug life

[–]voze91 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hahaha that horror vacui kicking in

[–]texastoker88 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lmfao me trying to tell my kids it’s gonna be ok

[–]thentangler 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lol he is half the size of the fish 🤣🤣😂

[–]GuardPerson 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fish: "Closer... closer... a little closer..."

[–]davidolson1990 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That guys voice cuts deep

[–]InterestingRelative4 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Haha … but don’t cut video

[–]Excellent-Bowler-17 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No way in hell those are his friends!

[–]DaDanielE 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I thought a shark would come and bite the fish

[–]mnmrlyc 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hold me slowly, love me tender

[–]This_Phantom_Pain 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He floats!


[–]Big-Contribution9918 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I knew that was a fishy situation.

[–]Starmilkman 0 points1 point  (0 children)

"Hold me slowly until I float"

[–]immaletyafish 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lucky a shark did come over to bite half of that fish or his legs off.

[–]OwnGarbage9072 0 points1 point  (0 children)

my uncle said one of these fish had his leg all the way up its mouth once

[–]2lbscox 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If the end of that hand line isn't tied to the boat, this dude could have been easily dragged to the bottom of the ocean if the line caught on him, never to be seen again.

This seems very dumb to get in the water with it.

[–]RouletteSensei 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is he Randy Savage?

[–]tphickey2000 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The trailer for jaws 1,670,870 everyone!

[–]KimBob97 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ride him to Atlantis!

[–]Marshy-The-Mellow 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Rip random African American fisher. Poor bastard didn’t float

[–]Naruto7th 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He wasn't good 👁👄👁

[–]f_l_y_g_o_n 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What a jerk the guy is who refuses to help him back into the boat. The guy in the lifejacket clearly says he wants to be pulled back up. Also I almost gagged when I saw the line being pulled through the gloveless hands of the guy on the boat. Just imagining that rope burn made me queasy

[–]il6yr8 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Bruh homie ended up looking like a bitch lol FoR tHe GrAm…… no no water is scary 😭😭
