An Unfortunate Bluefish Encounter

Sorry, you'll have to tilt your head. . .

My own first encounter with a bluefish was somewhat similar. After moving to Florida from the West Coas, where I had encountered very few toothy fish outside of aquariums, I soon caught a bluefish from the fishing pier at Melbourne Inlet. Not knowing them, while unhooking it, I mistakenly allowed my index finger tip to get caught between its jaws. It clamped on, and left a line of holes across the fingernail, in addition to tearing the other side, and leaving me dripping blood. The other fishermen thought that was hysterical too, just like these guys.
