In this episode of Average Mike, I attempt to catch a fish using only improvised materials. No hook, line, rod or boat. Turns out its pretty difficult.

  • A number of people have called this video "fake" by accusing me of using a metal hook at 14:25 . Please take a closer look at the footage. The black colour you are seeing is lugworm bait remains that have slid up the line. It is not a metal hook. The bone hook is lodged deep within the fish's belly.

  • As a fisherman this was enjoyable to watch. You obviously have little fishing experience, but your mistake was to use a dead worm on the boat. Only live worms work in my exprience. Another mistake is casting near the boat. I know you cant cast far but the fish see your boat moving and wont get near it.its just like a fish runs away from you in the water when you swim.

  • this is the wrong kind of hook, you need a gorge hook, which is essentially a small stick sharpened at both ends with the line tied in the middle. you let them swallow it and when you pull it gets stuck in their throats'.
