Who needs a fishing rod when they can snatch bass right out of the water?

This guy, named Robert, has a farm in Alabama that he’s been practicing catching bass by hand for over 40 years. He uses a rod at times, but he says he prefers the challenge of catching them by hand.

He doesn’t just have fun doing it, either. He snatches absolute monsters right out of the water, just like this mammoth of an 18-pounder he pulls out at the end of the clip.
