Video: Tarpon Fish Swallows Man’s Arm

man-catches tarpon with his arm

A man feeding fish by hand at a tarpon farm almost became human bait when one of the giant fish leaped out of the water and damn near swallowed his arm. The shocking video is like something out of The Old Man and the Sea — which tells the story of an epic battle between a fisherman and a large marlin. In this case, the fish almost won. After battling the man — and several of his friends, the huge fish got away.

    Sitting on his front porch, Vince tells a story. He claims that when live cod were shipped to Asia from North America, the fish’s inactivity in their tanks resulted in mushy flesh in the Asian markets. Eventually, the fishermen discovered that putting catfish in the tanks with the cod kept them active. Vince feels that people like Angela are catfish, who keep other people active in life. Thus comes the name of the film–“Catfish”.

    This was from the film ‘Catfiah’ which started the television series…

  • OutsidetheBox

    @Razz have you ever seen the movie Catfish? Nev was the original catfished one..

    A “Catfish” is someone who pretends to be someone else using social media mostly. :yes:
