Sometimes in life, the biggest surprises come in the most unexpected places. Brad Rich can certainly relate to that sentiment, as he and his wife Jenna embarked on a fishing trip in Seward, Alaska, in the summer of 2015. While sailing into the open water though, waves suddenly erupted behind their small boat, leaving them stunned.

A resident of Alaska, Rich is a grandfather who announced his retirement from work in 2015. Now enjoying life as a fisherman, the former school janitor took his wife out on a boat that summer, looking to catch some salmon and halibut in Resurrection Bay.
