Default Out for the count

I was fishing a tournament at lake mead at the same time mike tyson was fighting. I got hit in the back of the head with a 1oz spinnerbait. I went down for the count. While leaning over the side of the boat, I was watching a big bass inhale the spinnerbait hanging off his rod, He was asking me if I was ok and I was reaching for the net and he was like what are you doing ? I am netting your 4lb bass, .....now just let me please puke. He took 2nd place and got a fat check.

Here's another. Crazy and goes to show anything can happen. He's lucky he wasn't fishing alone.

Holy smokes! I can't believe he survived! I told my wife this year that if she ever goes out in the boat with me she is learning to operate it in case something happens to me while we are out there.

I told my wife the same thing. I've been telling her for years.
