Manswers says: "Fishing is most dangerous sport in the world!"

Caught this tidbit on SpikeTV’s Manswers show last night…

According to US Coast Guard stats, 187 people died fishing in 2005. Apparently, of Skydiving, Football and Boxing, Fishing has more casualties than all the others combined, making it the most dangerous!

Most common causes:

1. Collision w/ submerged objects

2. Hypothermia

3. Alcohol-related

…just another reason why fisherman are freeakin' awesome.

Seriously, aren’t these the three main ingredients for a good fishing trip? Your thoughts?

Having gone to the hospital once before from a fishing accident I could not agree more. I would also put it up there with the most unpredictable sport in the world.

Yeah, once I had to use a scapel, to cut a fish hook out of a friends finger. It is you against the fish, and only one of you is coming home alive.
