One minute you're a huge fish swimming happily in the ocean, the next you're getting hauled onto the back of a truck somewhere in West Africa.
Video of the monster catch, uploaded to Liveleak yesterday, suggests this large fellow is not particularly happy about his sudden lifestyle change either.
The short clip does not identify exactly what type of fish it is, but it's a fighter.
It takes four men to wrestle it into the tray of a ute, and even as defeat seems inevitable the brave mystery fish still has a thrash or two left in it.
It is unclear from the video exactly where the fish was landed or what sort of gargantuan effort to took to pull the giant from the water.
