That is not that uncommon.  Bears are opportunistic and can be pretty brazen.

The video of that is more than worth the lost salmon.
Not as tasty but a lot more memorable .

The angler did all the right things though and he has the vid to prove it.
Everybody wins except the salmon. He was going "home" with somebody either way.

Now I want smoked salmon.
I guess I'll have to get in line.

You have to throw the bear back if it's under 900 pounds.

Kind of looked like a set up. He was waiting for the bear to come over. But still a cool video & story. I'd of likely done the same thing.

Absolutely. What Alaskan angler hasn't tightened the drag & let the bear have the fish? (Why I switched to fishing from a boat...) As you say, the video is the cool thing!

Yeah, baiting for a bear incursion involving unknown wild bears for web notoriety is a modern epidemic

The more you eat the more you fart: ...and needs a new pair of underwear.

Now you can fish for Alaskan barn doors (halibut ). Just be sure to shoot them in the head before you bring them on deck.
Lest they break  your leg.

They is the tasty though.

We need a pot-latch. And it will be good.
