Sea Lion Takes Fish and Pulls Angler Overboard

Sea Lion Pulls Angler Overboard

I bet that you have been afraid of losing a fish before but never like this.  An Oregon man fishing the Willamette River, Friday May 6th, netted a Chinook Salmon but before he could get the net into the boat he was pulled overboard by a Sea Lion.  He was able to quickly grab the gunwale to keep himself close to the boat and from being completely submerged in the frigid water.  He initial held onto the net but quickly lost the battle with the Sea Lion.  In total he lost the fish, a $150 net, and a $500 fishing setup.  So the next time you are upset a fish got away, just remember, it could have been worse!
