VIDEO: What happens when a Coonass gets stuck after the tide falls 4 feet?

 Video Included

Anglers in South Louisiana deal with falling tides all the time, but when you head up the East Coast the tides are a bit different — which is what Gonzales' Gerald Spohrer discovered while practicing for a Bassmaster Open on the James River in Virginia.

So I've got to try to get out of here or stay back here all day — and that's not going to happen.
