This is a heartbreak if I’ve ever seen it.
There’s just something awesome about going out into the great outdoors, chasing after an animal that just happens to taste great and actually gets your hands on. It doesn’t matter whether it’s fish, bird or moose… the feeling is the same.
Knowing the source of your food, the feeling of accomplishment and being able to accomplish something, awakens feelings from deep within. And once you’re in, it’s hard to stop.
That is why everyone we know who is interested in hunting and fishing has a deep passion for it. It’s hard not to talk about it with other nature lovers and share stories, information and recipes.
There are a few things out there in the wild that can literally rip that feeling out of your hands.
Whether it’s a bird snatching your fish, coyotes getting to your prey first, or the big one running straight away, it all hurts. You can’t really describe this feeling of loss, you can only experience it. A deeper drive arises along with the question “What could I have done differently?”.
The truth is, there are just things that are beyond our control. It’s the wilderness out there.
These fishermen set out to catch some mahi mahi near Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, a popular game fish that is quite large and beautifully colored. In addition, they are a tasty fish. I can taste the fish tacos just thinking about them.
As the two men stand on the quay with a proud smile and get a picture of their fresh catch, the fisherman has no idea what feelings await him.
Out of nowhere a sea lion raises its head and snatches its fish like a thief in the night except for the broad daylight and the man was literally holding the fish.
The disappointment and disbelief is quickly followed by laughter.
Because what else do you do in a situation like this?
According to the description, the sea lion’s name is Pancho and it’s known in the area for its theft. The two men holding the fish are Mike “The Griz” Ritz and Chef Yvan Mucharrz from Capella Pedregal, who were filming a segment for Travel Channel.
All you can do is laugh and try again tomorrow… at least the fish hasn’t been wasted.
