Fishing Feats (1951)
APPROVED · 9min · Comedy, Short · 22 December 1951
Fishing adventures are presented. Marlin fishing, one of the world's most exciting sports fishing activities, can be had in among other places in the waters between the California mainland and Catalina Island. It may take up to 10 hours to reel in a marlin. The result of the battle may be heartbreaking to the fisherman if lost after an extended battle. In the next segment, two young men in a small rowboat in open Mexican waters are jigging for a hammerhead shark. Once they hook the shark, they try the dangerous maneuver of bringing the still live shark on board. Back to southern California, others are trolling for more sharks. The 721 pound shark they hook causes some logistical problems, but none that are insurmountable to bringing it back to shore. Moving to inland Oregon waters, commercial native fishermen are catching chinook as they migrate upstream. Catching the fish is as much a challenge as the fish getting past the rapids and falls is. And moving off the coast of Baja, other commercial fisherman are chumming for tuna. Although the fish are plentiful, catching them is hard and dangerous work.
