Hooked!  極限海釣

Catch some of the world's biggest fish with these extreme anglers.
跟著這些挑戰極限的垂釣者,一起來釣世界上的超級大魚!

  For some people, fishing is the ultimate test between man and creature. For others, though, sitting around on the shore with a line in the water waiting for fish to bite can be unexciting or even a bit tedious. This month, National Geographic Channel (NGC) is anything but boring as the cameramen travel the open seas around some exotic destinations in Hooked: Extreme Angling.
  Deep underwater, the kings of the food chain in the ocean have no natural enemies. All they do is pick their prey and get bigger and bigger. Anglers that crave excitement must go to their turf to battle with deadly sharks or wrestle with human-sized catfish. In Hooked: Fish Gone Wild, Matt Watson and his team are in New Zealand when they come face-to-face with one of the ocean's most feared creatures—the great white shark. Later, two German men that have been trying to reel in a catfish for two hours come to the realization that there is only one way to make the catch. They decide to take the matter into their own hands and wrestle the beast with their bare hands. Also in the program, a professional fishing guide in Thailand captures a giant Siamese carp. This fish is called the T-Rex of the carp family because it can be the size of a bathtub.
  Fish are magnificent creatures in the water, but they also can leap into the air. In Hooked: Flying Monsters, cameras catch people searching for airborne warriors in fishing meccas all over the world in places like Puerto Rico and Panama. One man even risks his life by diving into shark-infested waters to tag manta rays so that scientists can study their habits. Adrenaline-filled anglers also try to defy the balance of nature in Hooked: Gone Monster Fishing. In this episode, a tug of war breaks out between a fisherman and a massive bluefin tuna. Who wins? Tune in to NGC this month to find out.
