Quote:When Jayson Growcott paddled out to sea on Saturday he was hoping to catch a wave but instead caught a 10 kilogram snapper - with his bare hands.more --> stuff.co.nz
About 250-metres offshore he spotted a fin flapping in the air.
"Curiosity got the better of me and so I paddled out about 60-metres to it,"
the fish but with a flick of its tail it made its own way to Growcott and straight across the top of his surfboard.
he quickly wrapped his board's leg rope around its tail.
"It was a bit of a Crocodile Dundee moment that one."
It sounds like a Crocodile Dundee moment that one
