Hey there guys... sorry about the delay...  This Marlin video captures the events of one of my craziest days ever.... I was working as the co-host and underwater cameraman for a show called Reel Adventures in December 2006. We had been filming for about 3 days out of the Tropic Star Lodge in Pinas Bay Panama. It was about noon and we came upon this huge floating Log. Typically there would have been hundreds of Dorado (Mahi Mahi, dolphin fish, whatever you want to call um) swimming around the area so I told the boat to drop me off and come back in an hour or so.... they reluctantly agreed and I jumped in the water with my spear gun in one hand and video camera in the other. We were about 25 miles offshore on the Columbia/Panama border, in the Pacific. These waters normally have very distinct current breaks of color changes and that would have served perfect guidance to come "back down the line" and find me an hour later.... well as I got into the water and eased over toward the log, in full stealth mode> I noticed all the bait totally banged up and swimming in extremely distressed patterns. While listening to the Raw footage you can hear me laughing in my snorkel because I KNEW something nuts was about to happen.... just didn't know what!!!! well as the boat trolled away and things settled down, suddenly a massive school of Bonitos from under me just went CRAZY. they rushed up toward me like they had been hit by a bomb!!! well, underwater, schools of fish are VERY audible.... it sounded like the rush of a gust of wind and as I tucked my legs and pushed my camera down, kinda in self defense, I saw that huge blue tail... instantly I knew it was a Big Marlin. My reaction was to film this thing going medieval on the bait school but it didn't take long to figure out that she had 2 ideas.... 1- keep her log and bait as scared as possible 2- not let me have any of her bait.... well in the same way any apex predator would try to push off another predator, she kept coming closer and closer, faster and faster, with more intensity and deliberation. Well, I said to myself.... the best defense is a good offense and I'd rather stick my shaft through her head than have her stick her bill through mine..... well I didn't know what to expect when I pulled the trigger so I made sure to have the camera rolling..... you see what I saw... 

when the boat noticed my float was gone and all the commotion on the top of the water, they returned to find me with out a fish or my gear.... it had been pulled to the depths by that marlin... I got in the boat and started telling the story of what had just happened and as we put our baits back out, the captain yelled there's your float, Instantly I jumped in the water and grabbed ahold of it. the fight was on. her And I played a serious game of tug of war for an hour and 20 minutes, over 2 miles.... I decided to put another shaft in her and as I got her to the surface I was totally freaked out as to what just happened.... we returned to shore, weighed her 480.9 pounds. I broke the world record by 202 pounds for un assisted free dive spearfishing on a pacific Blue Marlin. Due to my disregard of records... (pope and young, boone and crockett, whatever... I never sent the WR papers in) this simply is a day and memory that I will never forget.
