WHAT A BUMMER…Fisherman Tries To Land 450 Pound Marlin & A Shark Steals It Off The Line [VIDEO]
This has to be a heart-breaker. It costs a lot of money to go fishing for Marlin and a real prize is a 400 plus pounder, but when a shark steals it off the line, it almost makes you want to cry. The video below was uploaded onto YouTube back in 2006, and has a staggering view count of OVER 41.7 Million views to date. Even if you’ve never fished for Marlin…watching this video is pretty darn exciting.
Truls Fauske (the up-loader) had this to say about the video:
This 450 pound black marlin was caught off Cairns, Australia. After about 22 minutes it panicks and goes down deep, where the sharks live. Big mistake. At least we got to keep the Bill! As for the size, its the Captain who makes the call, not me. Barry Cross (skip) estimated it to be around 450lbs, so thats what i go with even though i might agree with some that its closer to 350 than 450. For a reference, at the end of the video when i’m holding the head, i’m 6’4″. It might also be helpful to know that the boat is 65ft long and has a beam (width) of 17.5ft.
