A little bit of some type of setup there. The Marlin was just hanging there at the surface while a chase boat found him, a diver then jumped into the water to film him and a helicopter flew overhead?

Video isn't playing in phone browser... but this sounds very similar to the way I hunt bear.
I climb up into the treetops and run across the branches from tree to tree (Crouching Tiger style) until I spot a bear. Then I jump down on top of it and wrestle it into submission.
Works well... really saves on buying bullets or arrows.

I used that method once to hunt a T-Rex, but it was too easy, the T-Rex just gave up after I put him in the figure 4 leg lock.... he said that the force was to strong with me, so he just decided that it was his time to go... he was pleasantly shocked when I told him this was a catch and release trip, and that he was free to go, so then he invited me to his house for tea and biscuits.

I'm still of a mind it's staged.

Yeah I have seen this before in email and in another forum. I would have to agree with you Navy about it being staged.

yeah.. I figured it was fake also.


Marlin just don't hang around to get a camerman in the water and to allow the helicopter to hover over it while it all gets lined up for the shot....

but makes for a good story huh? :smilie39:

That sounds complicated. I just walk over to the fridge, open it, take out a bottle, pop the cap, and drink. I thought that the bullets were for the bottle after the bear is emptied.

I agree with navyhmc it seems to staged.I mean theres no way they can see a marlin a diver get into the water start filming and then some1 jump on top of it before they lose sight of it or something

I would like the same guys to do one where they do the same thing only jump on the back of a white, like about a 16 footer.
