Should have called in sick, w/ video

Two weeks back got a call from Dan that he was short on crew & needed me to call in sick. Due to a huge survey project that week, I'd have to be on my death bed to get away with missing work, so had to pass. Looks like I missed a pretty good day.

Here is the vid: ‪Giant Bluefin Tuna - July 27, 2011‬‏ - YouTube (langauge warning). It runs a bit long, some neat stuff in the 1st 5mins, including the fish on the sounder followed by the strike and @ the 15 minute mark they pick up a third guy 20 miles out, plus Mike the camera man from the 7/2 video gets in on the action, thanks to a Go-Pro he rigged up.

I was able to finally meet up with them that weekend, but we couldn't find our way out of dogtown both days.

great video, too bad the batteries die at the best part

My favorite is when hes looking at the sounder saying we should hook up there right here and bang fish on, couldnt have called it any better.
