(KTVI) – A man catching fish is no big deal.  But, one big fish actually caught a man and it was all captured on camera.

The Florida man was just dangling his arm above the water at a pier when a huge fish suddenly jumped up and latched onto his arm.  On-lookers screamed in panic.  The man and bystanders tried to help him wrestle with the fish to get free. After dragging it along the the pier he eventually pulled the fish from his arm. The big fish flopped back into the water.

The fish was apparently a Tarpon which can grow up to eight feet long and weigh 280 lbs.
