Everyone loves something they can't have, even if it's a wriggling fish in the mouth.

At least that's true for the Dogon people of Mali, who restrict fishing in the sacred Lake Antogo to once a year. On the appointed day, fishermen line up to rush the lake with baskets, clearing the entire lake in moments, reports the BBC.

In the amazing video below, watch the fishermen descend on the lake, holding the fish in baskets and even their mouths during the frenzy.
