Just when we needed an inspirational story the most.
Watching this amazing battle of men vs. beast is a great reminder of how having the right gear (and some perseverance) can ensure a story of a lifetime! For over 6 hours the fish hauled the crew almost 12 miles out to sea. With the chase boat running out of gas and the crew out of steam, this incredible video shows just how resilient humans (and fish) truly are.
With warm weather on the way let's stay focused on the future ahead. We all could use an adventure like this!
"You can skip through the vid to see the hook, which happens up front, then the release, which happens after the six hour fight. Oh, and then they run out of gas after chasing the beast all day. It takes a team effort to land these monsters. Wouldn’t you like to be chasing fish like these right about now? Or maybe surfing Panama’s Santa Catalina?"
Yes, Bro. Yes, we would.
