That was insane…Although I was never able to connect with a barracuda it was just enough to see these gnarly fish in their element. As a freshwater angler these past few days have been such an eye opener and moving experience. It is a WHOLE other world down here in Florida. I hope you guys are enjoying these Florida vlogs…as always, keep fishing NEVER stop! —Young Plugg
Josh and Dr. Robert Borrego headed offshore to a shallow water wreck on the east coast of Florida. Josh started off playing with a large congregation of monster bull sharks. Several cobia came up with the sharks. Josh hooked one of the cobia and fought it for several minutes. The cobia was being chased by a bull shark. Josh tightened the drag and palmed the spool, breaking off the cobia. Shortly after the goliath groupers showed up. Josh tossed a bait in the water and hooked up to the first goliath grouper. The fish fought very hard! After a struggle, the 200lb+ goliath grouper was boat side. The hook was removed and the grouper was quickly released. Josh started playing with the groupers and a monster goliath attacked the bonito on the rope (probably over 500lbs)! Josh and Borrego dropped a huge piece of amberjack in the water and hooked up to another monster goliath grouper. This fish pulled some serious drag! Josh managed to get the goliath to the boat. The fish was quickly released.
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.

[Reuploaded for Solving Music Copyrights Infringements] The History: A sport-fishing boat off the coast of Panama capsized last Thursday after someone aboard the boat snagged a gigantic black marlin. Photos of the ordeal posted to Facebook make it seem as though the monstrous fish sank the boat as it was being reeled aboard. According to Marlin Magazine, which obtained the epic pics and uploaded them to Facebook, the fish didn't actually play a role in sinking the boat, though the boat did eventually end up on the bottom of the ocean. Instead, the captain had been "backing down" on the fish, a practice where the boat is put in reverse to help reel in line. A large wave overtook the stern, upsetting the captain's balance, which caused him to slip backwards and accidentally hit the throttle into full reverse. This rapid movement in reverse ended up swamping the yacht and sinking it. A person claiming to be a spokesman for the boat manufacturer, Strike Yachts, took to boating forum The Hull Truth to offer a similar take on the incident: Direct from Panama I was told that the sea conditions
