Watch As This Spear Fisherman is Dragged Around By a Giant Fish


That's one angry fisherman; however, since he's under water, you won't get to hear much of his sailor mouth.

This took place in the Gulf of Mexico. Goliath groupers are known to hang out around ship wrecks, where they are most likely to find prey living or swimming around the wreck. In this case, the goliath's prey just happened to be the fisherman's prey as well.

This spear fisherman was under water spearing his catch when suddenly a huge goliath grouper, which are capable of weighing upwards of 800 pounds, decided to snag his catch. In the struggle, the fish ended up pulling the fisherman along with him, since he weighed more than the man did.

The man was dragged approximately 20 feet, despite the fact that he weighed 220 pounds.
