Video: Shark goes after fisherman's catch -- right out of his hand

When fishing in shark-infested waters, fishermen would be wise to keep all limbs far from the water's edge -- like really far, so as to avoid tempting a shark into turning your hand or arm into a tasty hors d'oeuvre.

This is especially true when fishing from a kayak, which basically makes you a target as a main course.

This kayak fisherman apparently didn't get the safety memo, and he's very lucky not to have lost his hand, arm or maybe even his life. He just lost part of the fish he had just caught.

The shark, which had already attacked the hooked yellowtail as it was being reeled in, surfaced by the side of the fisherman's kayak and took another large bite out of the fish, luckily leaving the man's limbs behind so he can fish another day. 

See for yourself in this Kayak Fishing Tales video just posted on YouTube:

Yes, they are laughing now. No limbs were lost. But hopefully it was a lesson learned.
