Video: Man Catches Trout with Bare Hands, Real or Fake?

By Ben Romans

Real or fake? That’s the question revolving around a recent viral YouTube video showing a man diving into a lake and retrieving a trout for dinner—with his bare hands.
 
In the brief clip, a bare-chested Douglas Owens emerges from behind a tree like a pale sasquatch and asks his wife (who is behind the camera) what she wants for dinner. When she says a rainbow, he dives off the bank, disappears under the surface for a few moments, and emerges with a healthy-sized fish clasped with both hands.
 
Maybe he had the fish ready for him underwater...maybe Owens just has the mad skills of a salmon-catching grizzly. Watch the video, and let us know what you think.

It has to be fake, or the fish was already dead.

He had the fish in a net or cage before he dove in.

Hilarious, but I agree that sucker was dead before he splashed in. A poodle, huh?

I'll tell you, the only thing fatso Doug is going to catch like that is a cold. Now that rainbow may make a fine meal for Doug's wife, but ole Dougie didn't get that "girth" without the help of Macie "D"s.
