Louisiana Oil Rig Explosion Captured on Film by Sportfishing Film Crew [VIDEO]

Members of the “Sport Fishing Television” film crew were taping a segment on redfish when they caught an oil rig explosion on film.

Guide for the day Captain Scott Sullivan was in the bow of the boat, and the camera was on him when it all started. He has his rod and reel in hand and is about to cast when he can be heard exclaiming: “

Holy S**t, look at that! Something just blew up!”

What he sees is a large plume of smoke in the distance rising from the surface of the Gulf of Mexico.

As you can hear in the beginning of the video, the narrator says “on the morning of November 16th I was in Venice, Louisiana with the Bonnier film crew filming an episode of Sport Fishing Television powered by RAM…” There was an oil rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico with confirmed casualties on that date in 2012. As amazing as it is, the crew saw the original fire-ball and even caught the plume of smoke on camera. After all that, it didn’t really matter whether or not they did well on the redfish that day.
