It looks like we’ve finally got our hands on a rendition of the classic Moby-Dick tale set in Hungary. But it’s a real incident that happened in Somogy County. A video released on YouTube shows a man named Lorant Szabo going fishing on Lake Harsasberki one beautiful day in June. It just turned out that things weren’t going well for him. We see him waiting with his fishing rod when a fish pulls on it. He jumps and tries to pull it to the banks. But in the end he falls into the lake himself.
Mr. Szabo has been fishing on the lake since childhood. But while he was waiting for a good catch of the day, a huge catfish pulled the bait. Within moments, Mr. Szabo lost control of his fishing line and the rope somehow cut under the wires and he couldn’t pull the brake anymore. He was pulled into the water by the swinging fish.
The incident was captured on video and was released earlier that month by Mr. Szabo. It took no time to go viral over the internet. In the caption of the video on his own channel, Mr. Szabo wrote that he struggled for an hour to find his rod in that lake.
The latter cites Mr. Szabo’s explanation: “The line got stuck, so the huge fish pulled me into the water. Later I was able to catch it, it weighed 66 kg.” That was a good catch indeed, Mr. Szabo.
Did the video entertain its viewers? Of course it has. One person said from the catfish’s hilarious perspective, “Fish: ‘Hey buddy, I want to go for a ride.” Another person mused, “I assume it was a giant Wells Catfish.” One viewer also dropped a suggestion: “Looks like he’s lost his rod and the fish. Never let go of the rod.”
One viewer wrote with a mockery: “Who’s fishing who.” Another person came up with a perfect phrase to describe Mr. Szabo’s plight and said, “I’ve been mugged.”
We’ll say Mr. Szabo was lucky it was just a catfish in a county lake. Earlier we had seen an alligator stalk a group of friends who went fishing on a Florida lake.
The video showed a huge alligator appearing out of nowhere while the friends were busy teaching a small fish.
