He's Gonna Need a Bigger Boat! Massive Waves Almost Capsize Fishing Boat

Posted by: Jesse Kleib on 11/17/2021

Just when you thought that fishing was always about having a relaxing day out on the water, out comes a video that will prove you wrong and show you that every once in a while, things get a little bit sticky, even in the world fishing. Even for a non-commercial fishermen, sometimes, rough seas can really be a problem and this time, we check out a small vessel that heads out from Ocracoke, hitting the inlet and heading into the ocean, during the process of which, the boater ends up hitting some pretty rough seas. However, it looks like the captain is going to take it head on!

It appears as if, somebody from a bigger boat that’s having a little bit less of a struggle handling the massive waves decided to pull out their phone and get to filming as the center console battles with the harsh seas, rising up on the swells and banging down hard. It might look like the boat is doing a pretty good job of slicing through that water but we can almost guarantee you that it’s a rough ride for everybody on board. I guess that whoever was behind the controls here really wanted to go fishing because these waves were getting intense to the point where it’s almost dangerous to be onboard.

Hopefully, once they got clear of the inlet and out into the open ocean, they had some smoother seas to accommodate their trip, however, it looks like mother nature wasn’t going to make it easy on them as they made their journey to get there. It looks like the captain of this boat had it all under control and was able to handle the rough conditions well. Thankfully, there wasn’t a novice tied up in this situation because it could’ve ended badly!
