Fishing Tales - How To Make A TV Show On Amberjack Fishing (1980)
I have hundreds of hours of old 3/4 inch, 1 inch, Beta, and other broadcast television video that was shot
starting back in 1980, the first year I began airing the first ever syndicated TV series on saltwater fishing.
During the past few years, I have been able to digitize some of it for various purposes. In doing so, I ran into
this segment shot back in 1980, showing yours truly trying to catch a large amberjack.
My cameraman was on the fly bridge, seasick as one can get, doing his best to capture the action. All he
could do was to try to keep a wide angle shot in focus and considering the shape he was in, he did a much
better job than most of the other TV cameramen I had hired prior to this trip.
At first, I wasn't sure if I had an amberjack or a large shark or grouper. After a minute or two of fighting the
fish, it became clear it was a large amberjack. It's easy to tell the difference once you have caught a few of
each of the just mentioned species. The video required almost two, 3/4 inch 20 minute long video tapes, so I
fought the fish for over 30 minutes before it broke the line. The only thing different about this and any other
lost amberjack is this one broke all the guides but 2 and the tip guide off the rod. As you can see, I get a
little upset at the end.
