BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. -- A Brevard County man had to go to the
hospital after a 5-foot fish jumped into his boat and bit him.
Josh Landis had been fishing with friends last week. They were
leaning over the edge of the boat to reel in a smaller fish when the
57-pound king mackerel jumped into their boat.
Landis said the fish tore into his hand and leg. He had to get
more than a hundred stitches.
