You Can Only Dream of This In-Your-Face Tarpon Action from a Kayak

Who knew tarpon fishing was a game of inches? It was for this guy, who nearly got creamed!

There’s nothing more exciting than hooking a tarpon. Actually there is – and that is hooking one while sitting in a kayak! This lucky angler has a fun-filled fight on his hand, but as you’ll see, this leaping fish certainly made things exciting – as well as pretty scary.

This footage is POV at its finest!

Quite the close call, wasn’t it? If you pause the video right as the fish is landing, you’ll see it was only mere inches away from crashing down on the kayak. Luck was definitely on this guy’s side.

Fishing. Unpredictable and always so much fun!
