When big marlin jump, they often seem to claim some supernatural hang time, almost as if creating their own slo-mo. But the smaller bodies of inshore fish move much faster.
Sport Fishing contributor Will Drost, who has taken some great photos of jumping seatrout, has now created a very, very cool video, all slow-motion action. Take a look: You’ll be amazed at how, when everything is slowed down, a seatrout’s aerial acrobatics aren’t so different from those of a half-grander marlin. At one point, a trout even does a pretty good rendition of the tail-walk. Keep shooting, Mr. Will: You’re definitely onto something!
