At just 5-years-old, Kellan Hunt has a lot of fishing experience under his belt already. But even the most experienced fishermen can be caught off guard by the unexpected, especially when it’s a tarpon that hits your line like a truck.

Kellan and his dad, Courtland Hunt, were out searching for tarpon on a paddleboard when a massive tarpon hits. It hit so hard that Kellan loses his pole before he realizes what just happened.

Luckily the line broke as they were able to recover the pole and get back to fishing.
