Almost same thing happened to us last time fishing with Chago. We decided to risk the "sure thing" inshore sailfish action and head for deeper waters for tuna or marlin.

Well, we trolled all day with not even a strike. As we about gave up, we saw a turtle tangled up in a piece of rope. We idled over, Santiago cut him free and we got back to business. Not two minutes later, the reel screams and we end up getting a 300lb blue marlin to the boat. The consensus on the boat is that the turtle Karma brought the fish to us.

Karma? I believe it, as long as nobody missed out -- including the marlin. ;-)

Good man, Santiago! But I have a technical question: I couldn't watch the clip all the way through. It would stop every few seconds and I'd have to watch a dot chasing itself around in circles in the center of the screen and then repeat. What's going on here?
