Fishing for Marlin anyone?

Post by Torcan »

This happened of the coast of Panama, Black Marlin sunk the charter boat.
If you think fishing's boring, take a look at this series of snaps taken the moment a giant marlin takes revenge on every big game fisherman who has ever cast a line and sinks this pristine boat off the coast of Panama.

How did it go so wrong?

One report explains that the captain was reversing full throttle to chase down the fighting mega-fish when he fell and lost control. Marlin Magazine reports that the awesome creature escaped and all passengers were rescued, but the poor boat sank into oblivion.

The cold up there must be getting to your brain Torcan.
I would have expected a Canadian to have read the earlier post by Striperman2 titled "So, you want to go fishing... Eh?
