This marlin comes in the boat like a boss, and the deck hands are right in the way.
You don’t own a marlin, it owns you. Once you’ve fooled one of these magnificent fish into taking your bait, the game has just begun.
Right when you think you’ve got the upper hand, the marlin will prove you’re just another turtle on the highway.
By the way, marlin can fly and would be happy to impale you.
I’ve got to believe that this isn’t the first rodeo for these guys, but a gamefish like the marlin can and will make people look like a rookie.
Seeing that second deck hand brandishing the pistol made me even more nervous! Even in that calm water I don’t want somebody behind me with a loaded firearm in a moving boat.
Talk about a close call:
My leg was aching just watching that marlin fly past that dude. If it hadn’t turned its head it would have gotten that guy for sure!
