The only live prey I’ve ever pulled out of a fish’s mouth that I thought might actually survive was a little catfish a smallmouth had slurped right before slurping my jig. The cat swam away, but who knows if it truly lived to tell the tale? Australian angler Angus James, however, can rest easy knowing he saved this green tree frog that was one inhalation away from becoming jungle perch stomach contents. According to the story on, the frog leapt out and over James’ shoulder right after he snapped the photo. Have ever saved anything living from the jaws of a gamefish?
