A kayak fisherman learned the hard way to never assume a fish has given up in its attempt flail its way out of a boat.
After catching a fish off the Gold Coast, a fisherman watches it flail around as he sets in a storage compartment. After the fish settles down, he puts the cover on and assumes it has given up.
He grabs one of his GoPros and puts it right on top of the covering where the fish is. A few moments after not paying attention to it, the fish kicks one last time and sends the camera flying into the water.
A floater would’ve helped out big time and saved him some money and some lost footage.
