Freelance writer Chad Love is an Oklahoma native, and back when "Hook Shots" was just getting started, Chad let slip that he had a jones to catch a tuna. "Tell you what," I said. "Get yourself to Jersey in September, I'll get us on a tuna boat, and we'll film it for 'Hook Shots.'" Seeing that Chad had never really caught any fish in saltwater--like none--I pulled out all the stops and got us a ride on the C-Jam, a luxury sportfishing boat of the highest caliber. Everything was going great, except after running 100 miles offshore and trolling for six hours, we had yet to catch Chad a tuna. Frustrated by the lack of action, the captain decided (much to the chagrin of the mates) that we pull in the tuna lines, re-rig for marlin, and head to deep water. Assuming I wasn't going to get an episode, I told the mate that if any line gets hit, give it to Chad, because he flew out all the way from Oklahoma. Twenty minutes later, Chad was fighting a 600-pound, 10 ½-foot blue marlin and making early "Hook Shots" history.
