They Said Catching a Marlin from a Sea-Doo Couldn’t Be Done… [VIDEO]

Looking like a scene from Kevin Costner’s ‘Waterworld,’ a large marlin is caught from the back of a Sea-Doo.

Marlin fishing is usually understood to require a large boat, huge fishing rods and chairs to strap and secure you from being jerked into the sea by a powerful, leaping monster marlin.

Matt Watson chose a decidedly different approach in trying to catch a giant marlin: trolling from a Sea-Doo (also popularly, though mistakenly, called a Jet Ski). To make a precarious situation even more dangerous, Watson jumped into the ocean with the still-fighting fish in order to attempt to release it.

This is hairy stuff, folks…dangerous and even foolhardy. But it sure makes for exciting viewing.
