Could have won video of the year if he would have hopped up, put the trolling motor down, and started slingin' an A-rig.  😅

Probably obvious to you boaters, but, why wasn't there a large rock hole in that hull?

And does this sort of thing happen often enough that he doesn't seem particularly disturbed by it?

Probably just caught it right (pure luck) so that the boat sort of bounced off.  He's lucky it didn't come to a sudden stop when it hit the bank.

My other question was why he didn't get bucked off, thrown out, even his cap stayed in the boat. Thing looked almost like a planned stunt for a movie with the camera mounted to see it all.

I like how his first instinct was to make sure the rods on the deck were ok.  Who cares about the boat.

Not sure I'd even call this an "accident.  More of a blatant, and complete lapse of judgement on the boater's part that could've been easily avoided. He's lucky this f-up didn't cost him his life.  I'm not really a tourney guy so what do I know, but the way some people take off and run down lake is downright dangerous, and a little disturbing.
