    Finally contracted Covid and had a break from work to find time to edit a video from last year.

    Check out the footage of a crew member almost going overboard and loses the Rod, Reel & Fish.....Only to be hooked by another angler and brought back on board.....with the fish still hooked!!! UNREAL!!!!

    Day 1 of 3.5 Day on the Islander.......Sept 1- 4, 2021

    Nice video report.

    I really like the drone of a Diesel engine. The sound of money being made, and fun being had.

    Cool video...lot of winding! LOL Seen that
    happen before. Guy holding beer in left
    hand, rod in right...fish yanks rod overboard.
    Later someone gets a fish to color with line
    wrapped around it, and the guys lost rod.
    Of course he never let go of the beer LOL LOL

    Fish long enough, you're bound to see it happen, or do it yourself. I used T-bone steak gristle for catfish on the Parker Strip. Cast it out, set rod against folding lawn chair, drop into bean bag chair, pass out until I'd hear the chair being dragged downstream, grab it before it goes bye-bye. Never lost a rod in decades of doing so. I have seen a retrieved rod, w/ fish still attached, recovered 2 times.

    Thanks for sharing!
    That’s some crazy shit. Unreal that dude didn’t hit the water. Would not be a good position to be in, in the dark, hooks and line everywhere, big fish eating other big fish, no thanks.
