See the injury in the video!
If you love fishing, and your Facebook feed looks anything like ours, you’ve probably seen this photo making the rounds recently. And with an injury like this, it’s no surprise the internet wanted to know everything they could about it!
Russel Ching and his friends were fishing 25 miles off the coast of Kaneohe, Honolulu where they hooked a massive marlin. The fish had lost its final battle that day and had expired before being pulled aboard.
As we drug it in, once, you know, all that weight got over the side it just slid right in…”

When it first went in, I couldn’t believe how easy it went into my leg. I mean it was just like a hot knife through butter…”
