A fishing practical joke involving anglers and an airplane

In fishing, practical jokes are as common as nightcrawlers and Power Bait.

A tug at the fishing line of a friend when they’re not looking, making them think in that instant they’ve got a bite.

Setting the hook on a fictitious bite to get a rise out of your fishing buddy.

Surreptitiously hooking an empty can to the end of your friend’s fishing line. That’s a popular one on ocean charters. The can fills with water and with the current, your friend thinks he’s hooked a jackpot fish.

But none of those can top this practical joke by a very skilled pilot on two unsuspecting anglers sitting in a boat in the middle of a huge lake several years ago.

It’s priceless, and the ending will surprise you:

And unlike those Bill Dance fishing bloopers -- you know, the ones where Bill Dance purposely falls out of the boat and into the water so they can make and sell blooper videos -- this one was definitely NOT fake.

Oh yeah, it’s the real deal. And fantastically funny.

Quite a stunt, no?

  1. Oh, he got them good! Good thing the plane didn't fail them, otherwise it's one for the aviation accident attorneys.


Please tell us what you think.
All we ask is that you keep it clean.
