Tarpon jumps cleanly over boat, almost hits fisherman in the face

head on a swivel.

Imagine you’re out on the calm water, just relaxing and throwing away, and then out of nowhere a tarpon jumps over the boat.

That’s almost a slap in the face…literally, and almost like the tarpon taunting you.

Tarpoons are popular sport fish, they put up a good fight and can get huge. They can grow up to 8 feet tall and weigh well over 200 pounds.

That doesn’t sound like a fish you want to smack in the face of. With a little swing that could knock a man off his feet in an instant…or worse.

Three fishermen are seen fishing on a calm day at sea. It looks so peaceful in the video. Then out of nowhere a tarpon comes clear out of the water, between the fisherman and directly above the boat.

This fish could set a high jump record, what a jump. He hasn’t touched anything.

The men all seem very scared in the video, but how could one person not be? That might not have been an 8-foot device, but it was still big enough to concussion a man.

Stay safe out there guys.

Florida fishermen battle alligator to land a tarpon

Fishing in Florida is not for the faint of heart.

Probably a little more than these guys expected when fishing off a bridge, but heck, in this wooded area they might be a little more on the go for this type of stuff.

Alligators are a cool animal. They will eat just about anything they can get their hands on, some have even been found with license plates and bullets in their stomachs.

They can also become massive, with large males weighing 1,000 pounds and measuring 11 feet in length. In addition, they have the strongest bite force in North America.

This isn’t an animal you want when it’s trying to bite your fang.

This group of fishermen is standing on a bridge while fishing. They hook into a nice one and an alligator starts attacking the fish. You will not give up the fight and double down.

One boy is even seen hitting the alligator with the handle of his rod. You must really want that fish…

As they try to catch it, the alligator opens its jaws and lunges. The group fights on and pounces on their fish again.

You get it in the net and safe from the alligator.

The guys came out with a really nice tarpon to catch.

Helluva fishing story.
