Watch a Lone Man Fish, Camp on Remote Rock Surrounded by Sea

To what lengths will a man go to catch a fish? If anyone knows the limit, it’s this guy.

YouTuber Gido’s Fishing Adventures’ most recent video is aptly titled. In “DROPPED OFF TO FISH HERE!” the fisherman gets dropped off in the middle of the ocean, swims, then drags his gear to a nondescript rock for his solo excursion.

His only companions? Us (in spirit) and whatever fish he may or may not catch.

Gido’s extreme ocean fishing camp spot

Once Gido gets there, he sets up camp and wets his line to catch some dinner.

This trip isn’t the first time he has embarked on something like this. It turns out exploratory and remote fishing trips are his bag. He has video after video of wild fishing antics, and we’re here for it.

What kind of fish are out there lurking around the rock in this particular video? Does Gido catch anything? Check it out above for all the action. And peep his fishing setups below.
