A fisherman was almost wrestled into the sea by a gigantic fish.

The mystery man was dangling his arm over the edge of a jetty, believed to be somewhere in Florida, as he tempted the fish with bait.

Then, the fish jumped out of the water and latched on to his arm, trying to drag him back to the water.

Apparently, the man had been trying to catch the fish by hand with no rod.  He was almost pulled into the sea by the creature.

As he tries to move back, the fish refuses to let go, instead latching on to his arm.

The video was taken by an onlooker and it shows the fish refusing to let go of the man's arms as he desperately tries to free himself.

Two other men helped the man to finally free himself from the animal, although he was dripping with blood.
