The Lasso: Roping in the best of the web

Sea lion steals catch out of fisherman's hands

They always say don't put all your eggs in one basket, but maybe that should be changed to don't consider your fish caught until you're on dry land.

According to the Huffington Post, the aquatic thief in this video is known as Pancho. He's a sea lion in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, who has made a habit of stealing fisherman's catches.

This video happened to catch one of Pancho's finest moments.

While the two men proudly display their fresh-caught Mahi Mahi for the camera, Pancho pops his head out from behind the boat, swiftly snags a massive fish out of one man's hands, and then disappears under the water.

I'm pretty sure if Pancho had time to wink at the camera, he would have.
