SEA what happens when you mess with our big fish! Ha! -Sadly for the boat, it's said to have sunk to the bottom and the fish - who made a visible skip across the waves long after the boat was gone - may forever be known simply as 'the one that got away.

Holy Moly!!!! Now that was a fish!!! That would have been scary! I have been in those waters down there and it's bad enough just sitting still on a boat without any waves say nothing about trying to catch a fish this big in a boat this size! The captain for sure screwed up when backing the boat up! Lots of money down the drain so to speak!
