When he got this monster to the boat, THAT's when everything hit the fan. Epic. Fish. Slap.

When he got this monster to the boat, THAT’s when everything hit the fan.

Getting the fish to bite? Not always the hard part.

Bringing a monster fish in, without snapping your rod in the process? Still tricky. But not the HARD Part.

Maybe you think you’ve got it made once that fish is close enough you can see it.


Not even close.

In fact, for the guy in this clip?

He was doing pretty well until that point.

It’s when the fish LEFT the water that life got difficult for him.

You could say he got ‘fish-slapped’ — badly.

When this monster stopped its slapping, what was the damage assessment?

66 pound King Salmon jumps into the boat on the Kenai River. It knocked over 2 people, broke the rod…….a fish tale worth sharing.

But coming home with bragging rights and a photo like this one?

So worth it.

Get Doug Giles’ book, Rise, Kill and Eat: A Theology of Hunting from Genesis to Revelation today!

If a person looked to Scripture and paid particular attention to the passages within the Bible that address the topic of hunting, then they’d walk away thinking not only is hunting animals tolerated but it is endorsed by God. And that’s exactly what this little book is about: proving that God, from Genesis to Revelation, is extremely cool with hunters and hunting. I’ll go out on a biblical limb and claim right off the bat that you cannot show me, through the balance of the Bible, that the God of the Scripture is against the responsible killing and the grilling of the animals He created. ~Doug Giles
