This one's for all of you avid fisherpeople.
You've definitely been there, right? You've got a pretty good catch on the line, but then for one reason or another, you can't reel it in and it gets away? For me, it's always because I either let the fish take the hook too far or I don't pull back hard enough for the fish to remain on my line. Either way, it's not a good feeling when we let one get away.
A viral TikTok video that, as a lot of them do, eventually found its way onto Facebook, almost depicts just that, but this guy got lucky. He wasn't able to secure the fish on the line, but luckily, he was fishing along a beach (of some sort). The angler literally dove into the water in an attempt to stop the fish from getting away. He dug around and was able to capture the fish with his bare hands.
His happy dance that he did after realizing he actually caught the dang thing had the internet howling. He breaks out into his celebration dance not once, but twice, and everyone with him can't stop laughing.
Honestly, if you were able to secure a fish that size that you initially thought was going to get away, guess what? You'd probably do a happy dance, too.

You can't help but laugh, right?
Can he keep that fish as a pet? Take a look at the pets banned in each state:
Because the regulation of exotic animals is left to states, some organizations, including The Humane Society of the United States, advocate for federal, standardized legislation that would ban owning large cats, bears, primates, and large poisonous snakes as pets.
Read on to see which pets are banned in your home state, as well as across the nation.
Best treat after a good day of fishing? The coldest beer you can get. Here's a list of the best beers in each state:
To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate
, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
