Caught red handed.

A video has gone viral of anglers Chase Cominsky and Jake Runyan at the Lake Erie Walleye Tour fishing tournament in Cleveland, Ohio.

And not for good reasons.

The two stuffed their prize fish with eight pounds of lead egg sinkers, and were caught doing it.

“Chase Cominsky and Jake Runyan Were busted with 8-pounds lead egg sinkers stuffed inside of their fish during the weigh in of the Lake Erie Walleye Tour.

They were escorted away from the tournament by the police and will more then like be charged with fraud and possibly other charges.”

Needless to say, as you can tell in the video, there were about 50 other fishermen in the crowd that were ready to drop the gloves and throw hands with these guys, and rightfully so.

You can hear people yell in the crowd:

“F*ck you!”

“F*ck you you piece of shit!”

“Go get that motherf*cker!”

As everybody quickly surrounds the culprits.

Who can blame ’em? These guys pay a pretty penny to fish in these tournaments, and those who do things the right way don’t deserve to get the short end of the stick.

At one point, you can hear the guy running the show telling them to leave, and asking nobody to beat his ass on the way out.

According to a number of blog spots, like The Ohio Outdoors, Cominsky and Runyan have allegedly been accused of cheating on numerous occasions, so it sounds like this has been a long time coming.

Don’t ever let these guys fish another tournament in the state of Ohio again.

According to the TikTok post, the two were escorted off the premises by police, and will likely be charged with fraud and more.

Fishermen Fighting Marlin Nearly Get Impaled When The Fish Comes Flying Into The Boat

Out of all the fish you could catch, and have the fish come flying at your head, a marlin is probably last on the list.

I mean, they literally have giant swords hanging off the end of their face.

What is scarier than a giant fish with a sharp sword for a face flying directly at you? Not much…

We’ve seen a king salmon do it in Alaska, and even carp on the Illinois River, but that just makes for a great video and a good fishing story. This is a little different…

Typically, reeling in a marlin takes hours. It is an incredibly strong fish that can take you for the fight of your life. It’s what makes them really popular among sport fisherman.

Marlin are massive and are known to jump during a good fight in an attempt to break free.

Usually the jumps get you going in a good way. You see that majestic marlin break through the water and your pants get a little tighter. Stick the chest out a little further… you’re pumped.

This one isn’t like that though…

This jump would make you shit your pants.

Just as the fisherman gets the marlin in close to the boat it takes a final leap for its life and literally lands directly on the fisherman. A few our fisherman are able to duck but it slaps the got with the rod right across the chest.

Now, you just gotta worry about getting stabbed…

At least it was easy to get the fish in the boat I guess…


Yellowstone Bull Elk Halts Traffic

Talk about something you don’t see in my part of the country.

Growing up in South Carolina, I can honestly say I’ve never seen an elk in my 23-years of living. Not one time…

They’re indigenous in North Carolina, but by the 1800s the number of elk in the state was virtually zero. They have since been reintroduced, and right now, an estimated 150-200 elk reside in the state.

But still, they’re pretty hard to find…

I imagine that growing up in a part of the world where you just casually see elk chilling on the side of the road, just minding their own business, the sight of elk my not give you pause, but for most of us, we’re gonna stop and take pictures.

This video comes from Yellowstone National Park, a place where folks travel from thousands of miles away to see elk. Although sometimes, you get a little more than you bargained for.

This group stumbles upon a magnificent creature who lets out a bugle and then proceeds to stand up, and start… PEEING on himself.

The ol’ Elk had been sipping the horny juice, as rutting bulls can sometimes piss on themselves in order to douse themselves in their scent and attract females.

My guy was just getting ready for mating season, and all of these onlookers were getting in the way. Thankfully we had the park ranger hilariously screaming at people to move along.

“Shot at Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone National Park. The ranger soundtrack is great.”

You gotta love Yellowstone though, where else will an elk pissing on his own face cause a traffic jam.

Elk Hits Strikes Moving Car Fleeing Wolf At Yellowstone

Never a dull moment in Yellowstone National Park.

Or Yellowstone the show, but that’s another story…

Spanning across Wyoming, Montana and into Idaho, Yellowstone National Park is home to some of the most incredible wildlife you’ll find anywhere in the United States. We’re talking bears, wolves, elk, deer, bison, pronghorn, as well as a ton of fish, birds, and reptiles.

Established in 1872, it’s the first national park in the United States and widely accepted as the first national park in the world. Some will argue however that Bogd Khan Uul National Park in Mongolia is the oldest.

Oldest or not, if it’s not on your bucket list, you need to put it on there ASAP. No matter when you’re there, you’re pretty much guaranteed to see something incredible.

Whether it’s a bison stampede, a bear chasing an elk, a pack of wolves hunting… the place is just crawling with breathtaking wildlife experiences.

And sometimes, you don’t even have to be looking for it.

Matt Fluke of Idaho Falls, Idaho, was looking for a place to picnic with his family when the car behind him got smoked by an elk. Boom, right into the side of their SUV.

Of course there is nothing special about hitting an elk with your car, just about anybody that’s every heard a country song has a deer a time or two. But this elk wasn’t just crossing the road, it was running for its life.

Yep, right after it slammed into the car and knocked itself out, a black wolf emerged from the trees, just seconds behind it.

“I didn’t look at my dashcam video until I got back to where we were staying at. Originally I thought it happened behind that car. We pulled over for a second and saw the elk on the road and the wolf with it.”

Naturally, they pulled over to watch nature take its course.

Wanna catch an elk? Just chase it into a moving car… chase is over.

“There was a turn out real close and lots of other cars stopping around there. You could see it from where we were at and the car that was behind me pulled over and then pulled out and went down the road… it was wild.”

Wild indeed.

Yellowstone Grizzly Bear Joins Wolf Pack On Elk Hunt

Work smarter, not harder.

In the wild, it’s first come first serve, survival of the fittest, only the strong survive, and most critters will go to extreme lengths to make sure they get fed.

But… even in the wild, there’s such as thing as freeloaders, and I’m not talking about scavengers.

One particular grizzly bear at Yellowstone National Park came up with a genius idea to follow along a wolf pack in search of its prey. And no, the grizzly was not there to make friends.

According to The Hill, this grizzly was following the Junction Butte wolf pack as they were in the midst of an elk hunt back in October of 2021. The wolves tracked down an elk, and when they captured it, the grizzly made sure it wasn’t gonna leave hungry.

It jumped in and stole the carcass, taking home a nice meal.

This “rare phenomenon” is known as kleptoparasitism, which is where one animal steals the resources of another animal/pack of animals.

The National Park Service (NPS) weighed in on the rare occurrence:

“This bear seems to have figured out that following the wolves in the morning will increase its chances of encountering a high-calorie meal.”

The NPS also said that wolves will typically yield for bears, because it puts their own safety at risk, knowing that they don’t stand much of a chance against the much larger creatures, and they simply wait their turn.

According to the NPS, it’s a rare occurrence because following a wolf pack around takes a lot of energy for the bear, but can be very rewarding, as an elk carcass is high in protein and fat, which is pivotal for hibernation.

“On the morning of October 21, 2021 visitors watching wildlife in Yellowstone’s northern range were amazed when they saw an adult grizzly bear seemingly hunting elk with the Junction Butte wolf pack. Wolves and bears typically compete with one another for prey, so why might this be happening?

Typically, wolves will yield to incoming bears. Since hunting is dangerous and often unsuccessful, it’s better for wolves to wait their turn at a carcass that has been usurped by a bear than it is for them to continue hunting.

From the bear’s perspective, it takes a lot of energy to follow a wolf pack around, but the reward is high if it successfully takes over a carcass. A fresh elk carcass is a wonderful source of fat and protein for a grizzly bear preparing for hibernation.

This bear seems to have figured out that following the wolves in the morning will increase its chances of encountering a high-calorie meal.”

Ever work on a group project where one dumbass doesn’t do any of the work, but still gets a good grade? This is nature’s version of that…
