Adam Fisk, an American fishing off the Panamanian coast, was dragged hundreds of metres out to sea at speed after he hooked a massive black marlin. He estimated the fish at 500lb and it was so strong it ended up breaking his line at the end of the ride.
“While fishing at the Los Buzos Fishing Lodge in Panama I hooked this massive black marlin. At the time I was fishing for rooster fish and was very unprepared for this marlin”, Fisk explained in the video.
“It was unaware that it had been hooked until about two minutes into the fight. Then it takes off and jumps 7 times before breaking the line. It pulled me much faster than I have ever gone in that kayak,” he added.
