"Deadliest Catch", Way to Die #283, is the sixth death featured in "Death Be Not Stupid", which aired on March 15, 2009.

Plot

An easily agitated electrician named Randall tries his hand at fishing to calm his nerves/anger, but is frustrated by not being able to make a catch. Randall strings a 12,000 volt electrical wire into the lake in order to kill the fish as he laughs evilly while asking God if he did see what he was doing, but accidentally steps barefoot off the wooden boat seat onto the metal of the boat floor, electrocuting himself and killing him instantly.

"I'm not a fisherman, I'm an electrician!"

-Randall, about to make the dumbest decision of his life
