    Huge Wave Nearly Knocks Cod Fishing Crew Off Ship-0

    by

    Here’s living proof that your job is easy.

    These guys were cod potting, trapping cod in a large netted enclosure or “pot,” in Alaskan waters when a crushing wave throws the full wrath of nature upon them. The men are washed away like some anatomically correct bath toys only to right themselves and get back to work.

    Me?

    I’d be off camera holding on for dear life while crying through every prayer I know.

    Here’s to you cod potters! You’re far tougher men than I am.

    A great white shark roughly the size of a Chevy Suburban has been tagged off King George Sound, Australia.

    The shark was measured 16.5 feet in length and weighed more than 3,500 pounds. This gargantuan size easily makes it one of the largest great white sharks ever tagged in the world.

    Video: Man Wrestles Hammerhead Shark to Save Hooked Tarpon-2

    by

    There’s a fine line between bravery and stupidity. Truth be told, I can see plenty of both in this clip.

    A gigantic tarpon is being reeled in when an even larger hammerhead shark appears from the depths of Boca Grande Pass, Fla., for an easy meal. Captain Bo Johnson of the DBo Show intervenes by grabbing the shark’s dorsal fin in an attempt to save the tarpon. A melee of sea foam and thrashing water ensues but in the end the tarpon is saved.

    Hawaii Spearfisherman Shoots Record Marlin-0

    by

    Wendell Ko landed a 506-pound blue marlin the hard way: with a speargun.

    The avid spearfisherman was hunting two miles off the Kona Coast on Hawaii's Big Island on November 20 when he spotted the monster fish cruising the depths. Ko told KITV, "It's the first time I've ever seen anything that big in the water, a marlin in particular. It was hard to miss."

    The 53-year-old nailed the 12-foot long fish with a single shot then finished it off with a few more shots. The event was captured on video by Ko’s friend and producer of the TV series "Hawaii Skin Diver" Kyle Nakamoto.

    "I call it [Ko’s shot] the money shot," Nakamoto said to KITV. "I mean, it's so hard and you need to be at the right place at the right time."

    Angler Catches Freak Fish off Florida Beach-0

    by

    A Florida angler that caught an odd-looking fish he couldn’t identify is lucky he wasn’t poisoned or shocked by his catch.

    Steve Harrison landed the freak fish while surf-fishing Grayton Beach State Park in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida.  Unsure of what the creature was, the LSU AgCenter professor posted a picture of the fish on LouisianaSportsman.com asking if anyone could identify it. The thousands of replies varied from the humorous (it’s a mother-in-law fish) to serious guesses. The first person to correctly identify the species however was Capt. Tommy Pellegrin, with Custom Charters in Houma. He said the fish was a stargazer. This was verified by Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Finfish Program manager Jason Adriance. He wrote, “It’s definitely a stargazer. They’re a couple of varieties it could be, but being it was in Florida, it’s tough to tell.”

    Video: Sea Lions Use Boat to Escape Pod of Killer Whales-0

    by

    Travis Twizell of Prince George, B.C. managed to capture this incredible footage of a killer whale hunt while boating just south of the Alaskan border. Twizell and his family spotted a pod of five orcas pursuing four sea lions through the coastal waters near Digby Island. As one onlooker points out in the clip, the sea lions seek cover by swimming as close as possible to the boat. This strategy makes for some amazing footage, but also proved slightly unnerving for the Twizells.

    “It was a little nerve-wracking,” Twizell told eCanadaNow. “We were not sure if the sea lions were going to jump into the boat, because the killer whales followed them over.”

    Video: 14-Foot Hammerhead Caught on a Florida Beach-0

    by

    They don’t get much bigger than this!

    A group of Forida anglers calling themselves "Landshark Fishing," recently caught this goliath hammerhead on the Atlantic side of the Florida peninsula. The brute measured 14 feet in length (for comparison, a 2015 Suburban is a little over 18 feet) and weighed more than 700 pounds.

    Viktor Hluben battled the shark with a custom rod and 14-0 Penn Senator big-game reel affixed with a circle hook for almost an hour before the group was able to tail-rope the fish and bring it to shore. The hammerhead was released unharmed after pictures and video were taken.

    Video: Anglers Go Overboard to Dodge Jumping Sailfish-0

    by

    This short video was recorded off the southern Pacific coast of Costa Rica during a fishing trip organized by Crocodile Bay Resort back in January. Captain Geovanny Leal was recording GoPro footage of a jumping sailfish when it changed direction and headed straight for his boat.

    The sailfish tail-walks too close to the boat and flips sideways over the stern. Two anglers standing nearby immediately throw themselves overboard to avoid the huge fish thrashing around the deck. They weren’t taking any chances with a billfish in such close quarters.

    Possible World-Record Snook Caught in Costa Rica-0

    by

    A 60-pound Pacific snook caught in Costa Rica two weeks ago may be headed for the International Game Fish Association (IGFA) record book. The monster fish was caught by Orlando guide Ward Michaels who has made more than 80 trips to Costa Rica in 27 years after his favorite species.

    His latest trip coincided with the spawn. At the first sign of the mass movement, Michaels called his buddies in Texas and told them: “To come on. The time is now.” In three days the group had caught more than a dozen fish, most in the 30-pound range, with two special fish going 47 and 50 pounds. But it was Michaels’ 60 pounder that garnered all the attention.
