When people think of fishing, most are transported to leisurely afternoons out on the water, without a worry in the world. Hopefully, you're catching some fish, too.
The 53 anglers competing for the 2013 Bassmaster Classic title don't know a thing about those leisurely afternoons. To them, fishing is a job - a job that can be downright dangerous.
Today, I asked a hand full of anglers about the craziest moment they've experienced out on the water. Some involved animals - rattlesnakes, alligators, and alligator gars. Others involved being shot at, and one being thrown from a boat traveling at full speed.
According to these guys, it seems like competitive fishing can now be listed as a "dangerous" sport. What do you think?
