Hooked: Monster Hauls

Hooked: Monster Hauls
In this "best-of" special, take a look at Hooked's most amazing catches and the unusual methods anglers use to wrangle record-breaking fish. Witness how two anglers on North America's Fraser River come face-to-face with a prehistoric goliath — a white sturgeon over 11 feet long. In Panama, another fishing team battles a monster marlin over 1,200 pounds and hatches a daring impromptu plan to tag and release it safely.
