Fish Leaps Out Of Water To Wrestle Unsuspecting Fisherman

Fishing without a rod is never a good plan.

What’s that saying? Give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he probably won’t get stuck wrestling a giant Tarpon that’s latched onto his arm? Something like that. This guy could clearly use a couple of fishing lessons, seeing that he forgoes the traditional fishing rod and instead tries to lure a monster fish out of the water with his hand. There’s a reason people don’t usually use this method and that reason is on display here. The fish catches the unsuspecting fisherman off guard and engulfs half his forearm in his mouth. After digging in, he manages to keep wrestling with the human onto the deck before the man finally wriggles free and the fish flops back into the water. This video is reported to have taken place in Florida, where the Tarpon is one of the most sought-after game fish – and where local residents don’t always make the smartest decisions.
