Cod are greedy, toothy, and like to eat each other with impunity.
A cod catch of over 40 pounds is a good day on any boat, but when they catch themselves, does it still count?
Watch as one of these fish tries to devour another and then they both end up in the net.
Alaskan ling cod are a deep water fish that offer up some great eating, but the best part was watching that big fish get to swim away.
Cod can be known for grabbing onto each other when one is hooked and fighting, sometimes multiple fish will latch on to a fighter.
In any event it was a good ‘catch’ and release!
