Whale of a tale.
I was on a tuna trip once when a whale surfaced in the wake just behind the boat and was hooked by all four jigs...We did not land it..!
I was decking on a partyboat trolling for salmon (4 downriggers with 5 lines on each of them) when the same thing happened. Everyone hooked up all at once (including the downriggers themselves). One of the more unusual ways to lose a couple hundred bucks worth of gear in one fell swoop.
This is the one:
A whale suddenly breached and crashed into the bow of a fishing boat, killing a restaurant owner on board.
Jerry Tibbs, 51, owner of Mr. Tibb's Ribs in Bakersfield, was aboard his boat The BBQ on Sunday when the whale hit and tossed him into the sea five miles off Port San Luis. Three other fishermen were able to remain aboard the damaged boat, which was towed to shore by the Coast Guard.
Tibbs and his three friends were just ending a day fishing for albacore when the accident occurred.
After more than 18 hours of searching, Tibbs' body was found Monday afternoon.
Coast Guard officials said it was the first time they could recall an accident caused by a whale hitting a boat.
I was on a rockcod trip the following day, and I'm pretty sure I saw the whale responsible (had huge gashes running down its back and side. I was on the radio with my friend (who was out looking for him) when he found his body. Just a crazy freak accident, but I've always kept my distance since then.
I was on a trip to Eden Landing and we went out looking for whales..but we didn't see any..
You would have had a better chance at finding bull frogs in Dec..
There are no whales in the grasslands.
