Gotta Watch: They caught what?

Fishermen may sometimes tell tall tales about the enormous fish that got away, but you've never seen anything like this. These people really did get the catch of a lifetime - and got it all on tape. From animals that shouldn't even be in the water to 40-ton "catches," you've got to watch these unbelievable fishing videos.

That shouldn't be in the water – A father and son fishing trip gets weird when they spot a deer in the water.   To see more great deer moments, check out 2010: The Year in Deer.

    Hey chief, you sound like a fun guy. What is it like to be an Indian chief in Manhattan? Do you just hang around and eat fish and deer and play music and smoke the peace pipe? That's very cool.

      I avoid watching these videos – even the ones that look interesting – because I can't watch even one more freaking commercial!

    Commercials before each video becomes quite redundant. No one, I repeat no one has a positive image of those sponsors.

    my dad and I were crappie fishing once in Herrington Lake (KY) and a Guernsey cow(calf) fell into the was drowning. He and I both climbed out of the boat and into the water with the cow, we somehow managed to get it into the boat and take it safely to shore.
