Underwater Sailfish footage.

Post by CCO625 » Mon Dec 01, 2014 9:02 pm

Here's a short bit of footage I was lucky enough to get a couple of weeks before the Billfish Comp. http://youtu.be/P aitRRHxvc Sorry that I didn't put it up sooner but it took me a while to figure out the editing program and then how to put it on youtube. Unfortunately we didn't stay connected to this Sail, if you watch closely in the slow motion he gets hooked on the bill and managed to shake it off. He then hit one of the skipping Gars before disappearing out of the spread.
Footage was taken using a trollpro housing trolling a downrigged bait at approx. 9 knots.

Cheers, Steve.

great footage, well done

amazing to see :-)
If there is water and it holds fish, then it is fun trying to fool them into eating what you offer!!

Especially when you can see them!

After watching the footage about another thousand times I think you might be right Doug. Can anyone confirm if its a Sail or a small Black?
