Fish jumps out of water, bites man’s arm (VIDEO)

WASHINGTON – So much for hook, line and sinker.

A man that looks to have been trying to feed fish off a pier got a surprise when a massive fish jumped out of the water and latched onto his arm. Bystanders helped the man get the fish – apparently a tarpon – off his arm before he became a complete meal.

Check out the videos below, including some that show the incident may not be all that uncommon.
