Default Huge Marlin Sinks Boat

Off Panama. Surely there has to be more to this story...like a bilge full of water...?

As the rest of the article says, the marlin didn't sink the boat...the captain did. Full throttle reverse to chase the fish, captain falls, and too much water comes on board.

I just want to know who was taking the pictures! :-)

Don't know about the"idiot" part, but that captain was a rookie - like we all have been.

Not so sure about the other guys but that little Panamanian was holding on for dear life.

Wonder if they landed that Marlin?
