Jon-Caleb Wright and Scott King had bass, not bears, on his to-do list Sunday.
But by the end of the day, they’d caught both.
The two were taking part in a fishing tournament on Guntersville Lake on Sunday when they saw something new in the water.
About 7:30 p.m. is when Wright said they saw a bear swimming across the lake from the Lake Guntersville State Park side over to Buck’s Island.
He got video of the bear’s swim, which he said was about three-quarters of a mile long, and quick run once it hit land.
Check out Wright’s video below, and tell us the craziest thing you’ve seen in the water in the comments section below.
