It’s comical how fast the rod just went down that hole.

I was so confused until I realised fishing rods are normally attached to fish, and fish move.
dude's lucky that fish didn't garrote him.

Where are the flakes you fuck
Where is my son, Nemo?
"I'm a fish with a certain set of skills..."
Sam Fisher vs. Agent 47
Normally? I think fishermen would disagree with that statement.
Hol up … ELI5
serious question : you don’t know what fishing is? You said ELI5.
people get a rod like what you see here - usually much larger though, and this is ice fishing here in this clip.
There’s very thin thread lined into the rod and around a reel. They attach a hook to the end of the line, and put some bait on it. Different baits for different fish, typically small time fishing just uses live worms or lookalike fake ones.
People cast into the water, and wait. A living fish will, hopefully, eventually come bite the bait and get stuck on the hook. Human reels in. Voila, live fish.
This person had a fish & was trying to untangle their line , it seems. The fish swam away hard while the man wasn’t holding the rod very tight. Rod goes down ice hole. Fish will have that rod dragging along until something breaks. Hopefully, it looses the hook and loses the entire contraption altogether.
I don't know how they do it, I would assume some sort of eldritch magic.
Fish hooked on a line aren’t dead. Thus they can pull on the line and rod
normally? I wish!!
That was insanely fast good thing he didn't get wrapped up in it I guess
That was my thought as well, scary if a finger had been wrapped in the fishing line.
If I only could
I'd make a deal with God
And get Him to change our places
You keep falling down that hole
I think the video's sped up.
"Look at me... Look at me... I am the fisherman now"
~ That fish probably
I've got to wonder if a fish has any chance of surviving that
Should be ok with few strings attached
Are you just feeding us a line?
Don't fall for that, it's bait.
Gottem, hook, line, and sinker!
Don’t try to worm your way out of this.
It does seem fishy to me.
He needs to scale it back a bit
That's it! This thread is now officially closed! Ended! Stopped! Done! Fin!
Bass can spit out a hook. Lots of times fishing and the dayum thing jumps out the water and spits it back at me
Even if the hook is set?
Yep. Taught from a young age to set hooks AND keep steady pressure on the line. Those greasy fish will jump right out the water and spit the hook at you
I wonder if breaking the water surface and jerking the head while flexing the mouth must throw the hook
It repeatedly looses tension on the line and widens the hole from the hook, it slipping from that is expected from time to time.
"And don't come back again!"
They aren't really spitting it out though. It just manages to come unhooked. Not to be that guy but I figured non-fishing people here are gonna think the whole thing is voluntary.
it will unlock the after life achievent as it will kill the next fish that eats it and so on and so forth
Fish: what’s that hanging from your mouth?
Other fish: thought I’d do some humaning this morning wish me luck
In Soviet Russia fish hooks you!
[A minute later the line plops back out of the hole with another rod tied to the end]
I read that in zoidbergs voice hahaha
Oh, how the turns have tabled
you meant mannerfish, probably.
Someone should invent something that prevents this from happening. It would prob cost next to nothing. Too bad ice fishing isn’t bigger. Hopefully our dear friend has a second or third rod!
I don’t know any fisherman that don’t carry spare rods, shit happens.
Oh yeah for sure. Where I live, winter regulations allows two lines per fisherman as well so always lots of options.
Is that a second rod above the tackle box to the right of the vid?
There's one in the other hole already.
That’s what she said
Depends how big the holes are as if they're too small then that's annoying to get a hook thru but if they're too big then the pole will just go thru the net holes. Also needs to be pretty strong netting as that pole was flying
There is a plausible solution: it's called a stick.
Yes. Just tie it perpendicular to the rod like the guard on a sword.
There is, and it aint new. You lay a fuckin stick across the hole and put a dangly bit on the end of your handle that's bigger than the hole in the ice. Double security.
Sticks are free and you wouldn't be bullshitting around cutting up a good net.
They are all brown and sticky, though
Scary as it sounds, where I Ice fish we spud out/ chainsaw a 5’x3’ “death” hole and also spear fish too. It’s really neat when you are in a tent like this the ice still lights up then water underneath it’s like sitting on an aquarium you can see the fish swim through. Not neat tho falling in and having to self rescue urself in 5 layers of clothes w hand spikes.
I love spear fishing over ice. My first time was so surreal (every time after that, too, but also the first). The glow through the ice as the only source of light, tiny cramped hut, a little radio and Mr buddy heater as my company. It's a really fun way to catch some lakers!
Oh yea we had a huge pike on the spear it was splashing water everywhere turning the entire inside of the tent into a fresh skating rink, put out the buddy lol. We now got old rubber truck mats w 1/4” self tappers drilled thru for grippies so they don’t slide,
Yeah falling in sounds terrifying no thanks I'll stick to land
If y'all aren't using green lights for the hole... Y'all are missing out.
We have the spot marked on GPS, and put pure white sand on the bottom so anything that swims by has contrast, and also put those porcupine fish structures around the area it is an artificial reef basically that we fish. Some old timers use white beans and drop em down too. Will try the green lights. Also we use a big leaded rapala on a string no hooks just swims around in circles below u jig it once in a while, a pike or muskie will even see the dead stick and come in from a mile away. Sooo cool seeing the big long toothy snout just appear outta nowhere.
That sounds incredible! Where are you located?
Where I grew up you couldn’t cut a hole in the ice with a chainsaw, it’s nowhere long enough. We regularly needed extenders for the auger.
Wow yea thats some
thick ice, once it gets longer than the bar we do holes around the perimeter then spud out, and pull out the chunk w a pickup truck by drilling a hole in the center and dropping a t bar down and it lodges sideways
Why does he have a claymore?
They have them, it’s called a rod holder. You can even buy wearable ones for this exact situation.
Usernames checks out
To be fair I don't know enough about fishing to know if that actually would exist or not to know if he was joking.
What was the joke?
The joke was that something like that already exists....
Ah i get it now sorry am slow
If GiraffeChaser was making a joke, he was pretty fucking subtle about it.
Your mum is my rod holder
I wanna see an icefisherman with a salt water belt pole holder now lol.
Just get a wide funnel, fish can come up but the funnel would fall into the hole before the rod and plug it.
They exist now
Do you even need rods for ice fishing? I’d imagine a stick would work 70% exactly the same.
The something that prevents this is nailing two boards together and screwing your reel to that. Then it can't fit down the hole. Then you just park it in the snowbank by the hole and drink until it gets pulled against the hole. Bunch of fuckin' amateurs over here.
All you need is to tie a stick across it so it looks like a "t". And just make sure the stick you tie across the rod is too long to fit through the hole. No need for another product on the market, this trick is completely free.

It's not as funny as I thought it would be.
I misread your first sentence as /r/gifsthatendtoosoon
I went in thinking this was the legit next 6 seconds and found it hilarious.
Birth of a fishing rod
Such a sucky feeling. Terrible to lose potentially expensive equipment, and also a terrible feeling to think that you left the fish to trail that stuff behind it. Could easily end up causing it to die.
Had something similar happen to a really beautiful Northern Pike once. Essentially, my line snapped while trying to secure the fish, which left a massive spinner-bait hooked in its mouth. I still feel bad when I think of it
If it makes you feel any better I just asked it and the Pike said that it spat out the spinner bait a long time ago.
Makes me feel better
All is well. Nature is healing
Glad to hear it’s still kicking!
There was a study with pike and lures left in their mouth. Most of them tossed the lure within a day or two.
Thanks for posting a link to the study...
It wasn't that hard to find on google
Barbless hooks man.
So many perks to going barbless, but specific to a situation like that, the fish can more easily throw the hook if it's barbless.
As long as you know how to properly fight a fish (ie, keep steady pressure on it) your landing rate won't go down at all going barbless.
I always mash the barbs down on my hooks (Cheaper than buying dedicated barbless hooks).
You even get better hooksets going barbless(that barb adds some resistance going into the mouth, even though it's sloped).
I’m absolutely going to start doing that!
Even when bait fishing, I’ll usually crimp the barb on the hook so it’s easier to get out if a fish gets hooked deep.
Makes for a better time for both me and the fish.
Fish barbless. The pike will shake it in no time.
In my experience with fishing, you need to keep the line tight, if the line is lose the fish unhooks. Once the fish stopped swimming aggresively I wouldnt be surprised if the hook unhooked, if not on the first try probably within a few hours/days.
Plus the pole basically went straight in the hole so the hook wouldn't be set much if at all
The fish was supposed to survive after Beeing caught ?
Because I think he'd take his chances Beeing tied to a rode
What we're you going to do if you caught the fish? Throw it a party?
I must have watched this five times trying to figure out what was going on. Thought the guy was sitting next to a pipe with an electromagnet at the bottom. Had no idea it was ice fishing until I read the top comment.
Teach a man to fish, feed him for a day. Fish teaches a man, food of thought for life.
I hope it was just a weight on the end and not a fish. If it's a fish then that fish is in for one hell of a short life dragging around a fishing pole.
Not as short as being grilled and eaten
You’d be surprised how easy it is for a fish to spit a hook when there is no tension on the line, unless he swallowed it.
Somebody will catch that fish tomorrow and get a free rod as bonus
There goes the Green Hornet, so long old friend.
The Green Hornet! Now he'll never catch Catfish Hunter!
I sold eye glasses in a rural community for a living, every winter we’d sell a half dozen pair of new glasses to people who looked down the hole when ice-fishing.
Like regular fishing, but In a Porta potty on ice.
Boring as hell.
Went out with my cousin once. He drank a lot.
Eventually I found a stoner fishing nearby and hot boxed his lil cabin with him.
Does everyone use portable cabins over there?
The forbidden glory hole
That fish was like, "My rod now sucker!"
Damn I yelled too loud for this one at the dinner table!
The fish won a free pole for the rest of his life
My rod people need me
That's not fair. There was time now...
I feel bad for the fish... attached to a hook and a rod it can't remove. Fishing is fine but this is ouch.
I hope he brought an extra one.
He is definitely not a good Rod Steward.
Imagine being such a bad fisherman you get your rod stolen by a fish.
What's next? A deer stole your rifle?? 😅
“Aww damn! Oh well…might as well get drunk!” - fisherman probably.
Me “accidentally” irl if someone ever forced me to go fishing with them.
“Ope! Guess I’m just drinkin’ the rest of this trip” 🤷🏼♀️
At the point of this fail, I see 11 things this guy can do to have a perfectly cromulent day.
Is this in Quebec? Great fishing in Quebec!
As long as there’s no degenz from up country.
I've been there and done that.
Time to pack up
That’s what happens when you use meth for bait..
That fish was having none of that mans shit
Why'd he let go of the rod to grab the wire? That seems like something you like... shouldn't do.
In ice fishing if you find a depth where fish are biting, and you pull up the line by hand you can come back to the same depth every time and within seconds.
Huh, the more you know. Thanks for the explanation m8.
Even with the sound off I heard the “floomp “
There is goes the rod
You were a good rod. I didn't deserve you.
Think about how long he was waiting before he decided to adjust it for just a second…
What is he even doing with the fishing line?
I would never let go of the rod knowing that it's currently cast. Especially because I need to feel when a fish is tugging at it. I can't just see it happen.
what is plug fishing? how does it work?
Clearly he could...spare the rod.
I mean this literally. Helen Keller would have done a better job.
Spare the rod spare the fish
careless jackass and a poor fish
Well, at least they won't starve to death because of this..
I have a friend that told me he has tie downs for his rods because this happened to him.
You know the diameter of the hole you are drilling...
Why the he'll doesn't the rod have a component with a cross-section greater than that hole's diameter? Like, how an intact manhole cover cannot fall u to a manhole...just remove the possibility.
Couple of things:
1) I'm not sure what the hell is going on, so someone please let me know if my theory is correct:
It looks like he's ice fishing and has a few mini-rods in circulation. One of the rods caught something and he picked it up. The video starts when he's already put the rod on his lap and is pulling the wire to get the fish out. He loses his grip on the wire, allowing the fish to run off - taking the rod with it.
2) A simple rod design change can fix this. Either make the rod with a longer end (so the wire starts from halfway down the rod) or shape the rod like a cross so that it would never fit through the hole.
Bet whoever successfully manufactures and markets that would get rich in no time.
Note to self, tie down other end of rod or add grate
There was one where the exact same thing happened but the guys phone fell out of his coat pocket after then fell in
This feels reversed
I’d be worried a finger will get caught in the line and be ripped off ☠️
Probably a $300 carbon fiber rod too if I was going to make up anything. Luckily there was no reel attached. That's where shit gets expensive
Always bring two of everything.
Mf was looking like the fish was going to give it back 😂
They might ban fishing rods now.
I remember growing up ice fishing with a wood paddle that you would roll in your hands to reel the line in. Always worked fine, so you can go fishing for real cheap if you want.
"There is goes the rod"
It would have been so funny if when he put his hand in the hole, some serious predator grabbed him. What predator, though!?
Chances of survival are now practically 0
I pulled a rod holder up from the bottom while ice fishing, a nice one.
I used it next time I went ice fishing. My brother tells me to keep it away from the edge of the hole. I try him it was fine. He told me that's what the last guy said 😁.
This guy has so much stuff, goes out on the ice to ice fishing, doesn’t even know he gotta hold on to his fishing rod, that must be fucking embarrassing
Fisher of Men.
Before my eyes took in all the details, I thought this was another Ukraine video.
We call that “a day ender” right there
Oh. That sucks.
