Default 2013.09.15 Frogfish and 75 pound amberjack

Spotted a frogfish and whacked a 75 lb AJ in this short clip on the Oriskany. I also visited the port side prop and spent some time in the stern area at the flight deck level but my camera malfunctioned and lost that clip :-(

Man that footage woulda been WAY different with 1 inch of error. Nice stone shot! Were you prepared for war?

Yes, I was prepared but did what I could to avoid a brawl. Once I saw how big the fish was you can see in the video that I took some extra time to line up the shot.

That was awesome. You got some gonads of steel. I wussed out shooting one about 40# in open water cause I was scared.

I did notice you took a few seconds to line up. A good brawl is always fun, but 75 lbs... on the O... not so much. Great shot!
