A fisherman has shared a video of an unusual ‘suction cup’ fish that he caught that can stick to walls ‘for quite a while’.
TikTok star Blake Hass caught the lumpfish while he was out at sea and decided to film it so he could share the footage with his 108,000 followers.

He explained that these fish have a suction cup on the bottom and if you press them against a wall they can hold on, even out of the water.
Blake added that it’s considered lucky to kiss these fish on the mouth before throwing them back in the water, so that’s what he did – although he didn’t film that bit.
In the video, Blake said: “A lot of times in the summer we catch these lumpfish that have a suction cup on the bottom side of them.
“If you stick them up to a flat surface they can actually stick for quite a while and hang on.
“They say it’s good luck to kiss them on the lips before you throw them back so that’s what we did.”
