We Have Another Bass Pro Shops Fish Tank Swimmer

Videos by OutKick

It’s been a long seven months since the last time I showed you guys someone jumping in a Bass Pro Shops fish tank. That incident was in Louisiana. Now comes a new fish tank jumper at an undisclosed Bass Pro location where the hooligan cannonballed his way into the tank while sticking to COVID mask rules.

That’s right, he broke the fish tank criminal damage law, but made sure to do it in a way as to not give the largemouth bass the ‘VID.

Now, I know you’re wondering what normally happens to someone who jumps in the Bass Pro tank. The guy in Louisiana was arrested and charged with simple criminal damage. Bass Pro told cops there would be costs associated with emptying and cleaning the tank.

During a May 2020 incident, a Florida Man jumped into a tank and caused $3,000 in damages. Bass Pro Fort Myers had to decontaminate the tank for the fish after Daniel Armendariz went for a swim. In 2017, a juvenile jumped into a Denver Bass Pro tank and “cracked his skull on the rocks,” according to a store employee.
