VIDEO: Fish out of water

This falls into the category of things you “don’t want to try at home,” or beneath your neighborhood dock or pier where a tarpon or two cruise. The “angler” in this video manages to get his hand and forearm into the mouth and perhaps gills of a school-sized tarpon.

It’s not clear exactly who has whom, or whether the man had been feeding the fish, prompting the tarpon to “bite” the hand that fed it. If the fish were a bit larger, the outcome may well have been different.
