While fishing on a frozen lake, the man in this video made a strange catch: a hooded merganser. It was not a fish that he caught, but a bird that, it seems, was hidden under the ice. Not to worry, this aquatic palmiped prefers salt water to fresh water and was perfectly in its element under the water.
An adventure that ends well
An original event that logically surprised many a fisherman from Pennsylvania, a state in the northeastern United States. Fortunately, the bird was immediately released after the hook was removed, but not without some difficulty. This American will probably remember this meeting for a long time!
A different kind of fishing
The man was ice fishing, a type of fishing that consists of settling on a stretch of ice and baiting fish through a hole dug directly in the ice. However, one must be careful and wisely choose the place to settle; it is a little more dangerous than regular fishing… And as we can see in this video, it can hold some surprises in store!
