What is there to do when a hurricane and flooded bayous dump a foot of water into your house? Well, you might as well go fishing. 

On Sunday, Twitter user Viviana Saldana posted a series of videos of her father diving for and eventually catching a fish swimming around the family's Hobby-area kitchen with his bare hands. Frankly, you have to see it to believe it.

The video quickly went viral and has been picked up by outlets including the New York Post and CNN. In follow-up tweets Saldana notes that her dad has always been a talented fisherman, but what's more impressive than his fishing skills is his attitude. 

"My dad is a great example of someone who turns a negative into a positive. At some point you have to accept the inevitable and make a choice to enjoy every moment and bring a little laughter and light to your worried family," Saldana wrote on Monday. "A lot of people assumed our positive outlook on it was a result of having good flood insurance--in [actuality] we don't. We just know that the material things can be replaced, and family is all that really matters."
