After catching a large redfish, the raccoon jumped into the water and tried to take it. While she struggled to get her hook back, the woman's fishing buddy laughed hysterically nearby.

In the video, the woman is heard saying: "Hey dude, I'll give you the fish but let me get the hook out of it."

As she calls the raccoon "kitty," her friend warns her: "That is not a cat, do not pet him."

She eventually got her hook back and gave the fish up to the raccoon.
