New Zealander Dives From Helicopter to Catch Marlin

by Owen James Burke


Matt Watson runs a fishing show in New Zealand called “The Ultimate Fishing Show”, which explores more extreme methods of fishing. This demonstration was inspired by the Gannet, a sea bird that dives from the sky to attack its prey with unimaginable precision. Mr. Watson, or Gannet Man, takes a a helicopter in search of a large pelagic fish, and comes across a black marlin. He lines up, dives, and makes his catch. After a brief grapple, he brings the fish to the surface and then turns her free.
