    Pretty good, Doc. You caught us, that's how we land them in Ktn.

    Looks like a rental boat operation. All fun and games until someone gets a big circle hook into the leg with a big halibut attached to it.

    There's a good example of why most people finish off or at least hogtie a big halibut before boating it. Many a bone's been broken by a live halibut "flipping out" on your once onboard.

    I was thinking it looked more like a clip from a U.S. television show called 'Dumbass'.

    Man alive, that is just irritating to watch,....

    the beginning, makes ya want to say, "Just Get Up, Guy"

    but I think the best is watching his worthless beating on the head, where his gaff apparently turns around in his thrashing and he is slamming the point down,...into the deck of someone's nice boat

    I think possibly, that kind of guy would be the type to be shooting holes in the boat, if he had brought a gun along
    or it would have been going off toward his videographer and cheering friends
