    The line is dragging behind. Often happens with big fast fish that leave the line behind and move too quickly for you to retrieve it in....

    What and Awesome video, and new found respect for the agility of these fish.....no wonder they are such a threat to ski boats once hooked.

    Not to be a nudge, but it looks doctored. The shark jumps exactly the same way every time. Why is the boat going forward and also the bending of the rod? But awesome non the less.

    Yes breath taking shots but just a matter of time before you read a sad headline again.

    Awesome clip.

    As for being doctored .... No chance ! unless they have a mac pro render farm the size of a football field and a team of cgi specialists rivalling the makers of avatar.
    Having caught sizeable fish ie billfish and makos on fly and stand up , I assure you they are extremely agile and fast. Makos are notorious for those long runs, leaping jumps and long deep sweeping dives that leave the angler confused. One second you looking in a starboard direction , next second the mako is jumping at port side. Landing a mako or bill requires good skippering and delicate hands at the rod.
