Pro Tip: When sight fishing, people tend to react prematurely to a bite. Slow things down and wait to feel the weight of the fish before striking.

While fishing with Dan and Dusty on the Real Deal in Wednesday we came across a huge leatherback turtle that was wrapped up in a commercial sea bass pot line. It had two wraps around its neck and three around its right flipper. We immediately went to work to free the turtle. These turtles are big, hundreds of pounds, and of course she didn't know we were trying to help her so it wasn't easy. But after a lot of maneuvering and untangling we were successful and the big leatherback swam free. Click on the link below to watch a video I took of the rescue. Pro Tip: Observation is key to having a successful day on the water. Today success had nothing to do with catching fish.
