Wow. This video actually angered me. Besides the impressive nature of the fish itself, there are so many lessons in this video that it's hard to know where to begin. I'm going to assume that this fish was intended to be retained and eaten, because if not then the way that this fish was handled is simply inexcuseable. These guys should have had a net to land that fish. I've never seen such a beautiful animal so mishandled in my life. My jaw hit the floor when I saw that fish being tossed on the bank like that. I could go but I won't. I'm too mad.
I watched for a while and then skipped forward....then said..."wait...where is his rod and why is he swimming with his face under water?"....then went back and ended up watching the while thing.
Awesome....confusing....weird.....outstanding fish though. If I were there in person, I probably would have been dying laughing when he started literally swimming.
