    He made an account of the same experience in one of his books too. Nice to hear it in person, so to speak.

    Very cool video. Followed up on youtube. Cool looking fish, but I couldn't find anything of the magnitude that he spoke of. Sign of the times I guess.

    I saw that show Many years ago, they did had a hard time with those fish, also showed a flats fish with very long chin filaments, something like a redfish meets a goat.
