Incredible

 I watched it too, amazing how they come to the surface then go down again just to size up the enemy I think! I'm glad they let it go, it deserved it's freedom after wearing out two anglers.  I've seen one battle like that one befor on a old fishing show. Big sword caught at night off the three kings, the angler was partially handicapped and fought it from the game chair. It too was massive! when they brought it on board it hung out both sides of the game boat. (HARDCORE).
