FTA: " The man wriggles and wrestles to free himself from the whopping beast which is understood to be a tarpon somewhere in Florida.

After dragging it along the jetty, still attached to his arm, he eventually frees himself from the creature and the fish flops back into the water.

Perhaps he should try a rod next time..."


A rod?

HOW ABOUT NO!

looks like he tried to have happen exactly what happened. Dangling bait or something in order to grab a fish. And stop screaming biatch!

Without clicking the link, I would surmise that The Sun is, yet again, just surfing Youtube and then publishing summaries of whatever dumbassery they come across?

This is like when CNN uses their primetime anchors to read tweets out loud.

i have a friend that had these 2 huge oscars. put your hand(s) above the tank and they catch you also.

A fist is one thing - but would you dangle your ROD as fish bait?

I don't think so.

Well, it's not that new

Exactly. Why would you be stupid and rude enough to "catch" one of those fellows? That idiot must be from Alabama.

Depending on where he is that's very possibly illegal.

Hope he knew enough to check the rules.

Uh, 'fishing'? There are a number of places in Florida where you can 'feed' Tarpon off of a dock - which looks like what he's doing.

Why do women get so freaking emotional? STFU already.

I don't always feed tarpon. But when I do, I use children.

A simple hip check would have solved the problem. Looks like there were plenty of guys standing around.

twistofsin: There is no way in hell I'd let that fish get away.


From what I gather from the locals who have posted here, the fish does it often enough that the whole thing is a show for tourists.

What_Would_Jimi_Do: i have a friend that had these 2 huge oscars. put your hand(s) above the tank and they catch you also.


I've had that happen before.  For years, they were happy chomping at the air bubbles trapped in my arm hair as I was cleaning their tank.  Then one day, one of them chomps my pinky.  Their teeth were too tiny to really break the skin, but it did make it impossible to pull them off without harming them.  Eventually they release.  Became a PITA to clean the tank, though.  Feeding them in advance to sate their appetite didn't work.  I eventually had to chase them around the tank with my hand to teach them that "hand is bad".

Why?  Is there an undocumented problem with children trying to eat other people's hands?  Because if that's the case, I'll gladly take your advice.

thrasherrr: Er, Noodling


From your link:

"Most noodlers have spotters who help them bring the catfish in, either to shore or to their boat; noodling in pairs is considered important for safety, and also makes it a more social activity, with noodling partners often forming long-term partnerships.[1]"

Life-long noodling partners.
