There is not an angler alive that hasn’t gotten flipped the middle fin. You know, just when you think you have a fish beat, it’s coming in nice and easy, then it shakes its tail and bolts away? Or when its so close to the net and you make eye contact just before the head shake that snaps the line? Well, the photo below is from a series that popped up on the Facebook page of BDOutdoors over the weekend.


I don’t really know much other than this crew was backing down on a huge black marlin in Panama when the boat swamped. Luckily, the whole crew was rescued after the boat went down. Take a good look, because that’s the best middle fin shot you’ll ever see. Click here to see the others in this wicked (yet very scary) series.
