Bite Me

my fishing pals and i were on hatteras island in the nc outer banks last week for our yearly tuna fishing trip with our good friend jay cavanaugh, captain of the bite me along with his excellent mate and compadre, kat. my friend pat brought his gopro trolling device that we ran within the dredge (that’s a fake school of bait, that you can see in the video). anyway we have a few hours of footage from trolling as well as deep drops for bottom fishing. little did we know on our first day offshore that a big blue marlin had sniffed our baits. the video here is that blue marlin. pretty cool.
