Fisherman Lands 17-foot Sawfish

Josh Jorgensen knew he had a really big fish on the line, but when he finally saw it, he was a bit shocked. It was a sawfish, which is a critically endangered species. Jorgensen called the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission for advice. They told him to record the location it was caught via GPS, try to estimate its size, and cut the line as close to the fish as they could without getting hurt.

The fish appeared to be about 17 feet long and weighed 700 pounds. When Jorgensen tried to cut the line with a pair of bolt cutters, the sawfish knocked them right out of his hands! But they did manage to free the fish. The screenshot above is when he grabbed the fish’s tail and the fish said, “Do you mind!?” -via reddit
