    That orca has a fiendish sense of humor. Follows right on and comes up close to watch the reaction. As if to say, “Here, I’ve cleaned it for you.” And beautifully stripped it was. It took finesse. Knew the head had the lure in it too.

    We dont have the orca problem here in Oregon. We are fortunate enough to have sea lions eating our fish. They grab the fish and swim off with it breaking your line. Then they surface fifty yards away eating the belly of your fish, discarding the rest to the sea gulls. They are swimming over 100 miles from the ocean and travelling up at least two rivers to do it. Pretty frustrating to be reeling in a fish to lose it even closer to the boat than the one in the movie.

    sport fishing is not a very cost effective way usually to put food on the table.
    It is though a great way to get stories to tell your friends over drinks about that time a couple of years ago……i would say he got a good one that day even has the pictures to show might even get a free drink out of it once in a while.
    that whale how ever is just showing off as if to say “you think you are a mighty fisher I laugh at you, here is your fish, enjoy”

    Absolutely.

    What’s a boat? A hole in the water that you throw money into.

    Too many times I’ve spent a hundred or so dollars on gas and bait to bring home 30 or 40 bucks of snapper or mahi. And I’m not even talking about excursions to Bimini or Grand Bahama.

    Fun as hell though. For me that’s where the value is. Flying fish gliding through the bow spray. Dolphins surfing in the wake. Fighting “a good one!” only to find it’s a foot long baby tuna. A skyrocketing kingfish landing right in your boat. A Mahi you’ve caught barfing up a still live baby flying fish and setting it free. Trying to get out of the inlet with a waterspout a 1/4 mile away. A raft of sargassum the size of a couple of football fields. All the cool critters you can shake out of sargassum. Marlin or sailfish flashing. Seeing a for real submarine. A patch of rain appearing out of nowhere to cool you down on a 90something degree day. A big bull Mahi and his cows following your lures and baits for 1/2 an hour AND NOT EVEN TAKING A SWIPE AT THEM (it was really cool, in hindsight, but I went out of my mind that day)

    Nowadays, it’s shorefishing for me. (I don’t know anyone with a boat). Somewhat less expensive. Not that cost effective either. Still lots of fun though.
