66-pound King Salmon Leaps Into Boat, Takes Out Fishermen

When these two fellows hit Alaska‘s Kenai River for an afternoon of fishing for King Salmon, having their catch practically give itself to them wasn’t something they were expecting. They were struggling to wrangle the 66-pound King Salmon and keep him on the line, but out of nowhere, the mammoth fish jumped into their boat with full force, breaking the rod and knocking both men off their seats. They were able to keep hold of it, but that’s one heck of a big fish story.
