On one hand, you can't deny that Konrad's swim for survival is impressive. It certainly speaks to his athleticism, because let's be honest, the average Joe (including this Joe) wouldn't have made it very far. At the same time, while this story thankfully has a very happy ending, kudos can only extend so far. This Joe wouldn't have made the 9-mile swim, but he would have had a personal EPIRB strapped to his hip, or his boat outfitted with a remote kill switch, if he was going to fish offshore alone. Have a great weekend, and bring a friend fishing.
