Panama: More Underwater WonderAugust 19, 2011
This footage is so beautiful, I don’t know why I bother writing anything at all!!
Russ and Jim headed out in search of tuna to try for some on the fly…Mate Donar jumped in the water with no hesitation with the underwater camera for some footage of the yellowfin as it approached the boat.
He said the tuna moved so fast it was hard to keep track of it! And this is after a 2 hour battle…imagine how feisty the fish was at the beginning! Russ says he was more exhausted after the 55 lber on the fly than he was by the 600 lb marlin yesterday!
The sea life here is extraordinary – really magic. The dolphins hover nearby watching and clicking away – really makes you wonder what they are discussing!
Check out yesterday’s post if you haven’t seen it yet for another video of a black marlin underwater!
Tomorrow our peaceful bay will fill with 400 anglers and their boats for the Yamaha Fishing Tournament – one of the biggest of the season here.
Goodnight from Paradise,
