We scoured the depths of the internet to bring you clips that will make you turn your head to the side like a newborn puppy. The mix of GoPro footage and surveillance video comes from Maryland to Mexico. The video clips include rare species, weird situations and holy crap moments – dive in.
Did we miss a video? Please let us know in the comments below.
A white marlin tries to keep up with the boat Pumpin Hard. Dredge cams show the sheer speed of these suckers.
See the mako in its raw form. This was shot out of Ocean City, MD. The Pumpin Hard filmed this while trolling between 6 and 7 knots. The mako seems so careful with picking off the baits – as if he knows there are hooks. He just likes to eat the good parts.
Out of Isla Mujeres, Mexico, watch these sardines on the run from a gang of sailfish. The baitball jukes out the sails like a collective offensive line, protecting themselves as a team.
Sailfish aren’t big fans of the papparazzi. Some just don’t like getting their picture taken, this one in particular pulls a Sean Penn on this GoPro.
Swordfish hate technology.
Hagfish would be the date with bad breath. See its defense mechanism in all its glory. From the account uploader: “Hagfishes (Myxinidae) are a family of jawless marine pre-vertebrates. Those video images taken in New Zealand revealed that hagfishes are able to choke their would-be predators with gill-clogging slime.It also shows that hagfishes are actively preying on other fish in New Zealand waters.”
No, it’s not an underwater puppet. It’s a prehistoric Frill Shark caught on cam! From the account uploader: “The Awashima Marine Park in Shizuoka, south of Tokyo, was alerted by a fisherman at a nearby port on Sunday that he had spotted an odd-looking eel-like creature with a mouthful of needle-sharp teeth. Marine park staff caught the 5 foot (1.6 meter) long creature, which they identified as a female frilled shark, sometimes referred to as a ‘living fossil’ because it is a primitive species that has changed little since prehistoric times.They live between 1,968 and 3,280 feet (600 and 1,000 meters) under the water, which is deeper than humans can go.”
This mako steals the spotlight. A real stage hog.
