5-foot mackerel flattens Aussie angler


Holy mackerel! Fish floors Australian fisherman in revenge attack

May 3, 1:25

SYDNEY (AFP) - In a fishy tale with a different ending, an Australian angler described how a five-foot mackerel jumped into his boat, knocked him down and injured him -- and then got away.

Glen Hopper said he suffered bruised ribs and cuts to his face and arms when the 1.5 metre (five foot) mackerel flattened him in what he dubbed a case of "fishy's revenge".

"It felt like I'd just run into a brick wall, because I was going 20 knots one way and it was speeding the opposite direction," Hopper, from Queensland state's Sunshine Coast, told the Australian Associated Press.
