Have you ever seen a fish swallow this many squid jigs?
Here's a short video with a lot to offer. You can see the head of the fish in the background, but it doesn't make the fish any easier to identify.
What you can see without a doubt, however, is the number of squid jigs bound up inside of the fish as this person cleans it. Clearly this fish found a way to survive with a multitude of hooks and a mess of fishing line stuck inside of it...or has it?
Watch the video and decide for yourself:
First, there are any number of fish that find squid to be a tasty treat. Though it could be any countless species, it's possible this may be a pollock, which can reach up to 25 pounds and surely a fan of squid.
Secondly, is this even real? Could someone have possibly stuffed a fish full of squid jigs just to make a viral video? In today's world, it wouldn't be much of a surprise, but who knows?
Between the way hooks are bound up inside the fish and the visible line, it's possible this one fish could've found a commercial fishing boat and attacked as many squid as it could. However, it would've had to swallow a lot of jigs.
What do you think? Is this real or fake?
