Just What Exactly is This Guy About to Reel In?

Just what is on the other end of this guy’s line?

There’s something big on the other end of this guy’s line. His fight with what is assumed to be a big fish draws a small crowd on onlookers on the dock. But it turns out, there’s something else on the other end of the line and it’s a lot toothier.

Unfortunately we don’t get a good look at it, but you probably noticed whatever was on the line wasn’t exactly acting like a fish. That’s because Stomp reports that shadowy shape on the surface near the end was actually a 9-foot saltwater crocodile the man had on the line. Yikes!

It’s probably just as well the thing eventually broke the line and got free. After all, even if he got it over to the pier, what was he going to do then? It looks like the pier is a good long ways off the water. There was no way he was going to lift that thing up and over the railing.

In the end he might be happy this was one fishing story where the big one did get away!
