    1. @Pollie 074 lol for real. I can name many other YouTube fisherman that would do the same. Nwfs. Addicted fishing, Jon B, one rod etc.

  4. I know and love that feeling so much bro! Congratulations! You guys inspired me to catch my first one too ✊🏽

  5. It’s always a special feeling to hook into a brand new species. I know well the excitement it can generate and noticed how your voice went several octaves higher after realizing what you finally hooked… good on ya mate and kudos to you and your crew of friends for providing all other fishermen a chance to witness these adventures. I had a feeling once you released it, it was going to bolt out of sight quickly!

  6. You can tell how much that meant to you catching that yellow fin and to get it back so quick and healthy . Makes it all worthwhile. Also love how well you did to hide your location by flipping the the shot. All about protecting the fish and respecting the land. Top quality as always bro . Yeeeeeeww 💪

  10. That casting montage gives a real appreciation for what you do for every fish! I’m sure that was barely a fraction of them!

    Great stuff, as always!

  11. My goodness this is one of the best fishing vids I’ve ever seen. The raw enthusiasm, elation over the catch, care for the fish, and the underwater footage release. Fantastic all around. Well done, mate.

  12. 7:53 “…if I’m casting I should be filming” – Words that every fishing video creator lives by 😎
    Good stuff mate, could feel how excited you were to catch this one!

  13. Guys love you vids, love more the efforts you put in not only to catch, but the extra efforts to release them.
    Class Act Mate, Tight Lines in the future.
