Things people do up north.
1. It wasn't a donkey. (A barra easily over 1m).
2. He wasn't winding/ reeling in at all. And i can assure you a big arse barra Will make you work for it.
3. As said already once you could see the barra it didn't seem to be moving.
4. The voice over, just maybe a little to much sarcasm.
So pretty sure the comments about the lure, croc bring hooked etc need not worry causes i bet there was any hook or lure...
