Weirdest Fish Incident?

First there was the discussion: What Was Craziest Thing Found While Fishing?

Now Florida Sportsman members are asking, “What was the strangest fish-related incident seen while on the water?

As it turns out, big fish have big appetites—and sometimes that can get them into some trouble. More than one member posted photos of fish that had tried to eat other fish that were just too large. For whatever reason, in Florida, large seatrout (more than other inshore species) tend to chomp oversize baits.

Other incidents include the duck-billed platypus that climbed down the seawall in Key Largo, one codfish that ate two hooks at the same time in Massachusetts, and the 5-pound bass that ate a 2-pound bass.

Check out some of the stories from other members and include your own.
