    There's a great video; The do's and don'ts of Bait and Switch which ends up with Stewart being yanked overboard. On a more somber note... Stewart a great fisherman passed away a few weeks ago. May God rest his soul...

    Looks like the leader gets wrapped in the guides.

    Boat backing down! Glad he got pulled about 10 feet away from the stern!

    Great vid. I have never seen it for the outrigger cam. Very cool. Looks like he button down the drag, thinking they had the fish close enough in for the handline, and release...just before the fish mad a huge run.

    sorry to read that he has passed. RIP

    The Gentlemen was tip wrapped.You can see him trying to unwrap just before the fish took off.If you count the guides on the Pole at the start there are 6 and tip.At the end the last 3 guides are missing.If you watch the slow motion you can see these 3 "wrapped" guides firing into the water behind the boat just as Mr Campbell goes overboard. What a great Fisherman-RIP.

    This is one of the most amazing fishing videos ever captured, but even Stewart would admit that he made the mistake; he didn't wind the swivel to the rod tip when the fish was on the wire. This took place in Madeira, Portugal in the 1996 season when the marlin fishing was at it's best in the past 30 years. The fish hooked was a potential world record on #30 line class. The crew on the boat was likely the best assembled anywhere,at the time, and all are considered legends in the sportfishing biz. Stewart will be missed
