We often talk about hooking into a whale when describing a giant fish. This kayak fisherman story literally starts off with, "I hooked into a whale!". The Angler said he estimated the whale to be 45 tons. He did make it a point to not allow the whale to spool him and let the whale break off so he only had a few feet of leader dragging behind him.

The fishrman said "I do not chase after or bother the whales. I go out to catch fish for food & for some quality time on the water. This animal happened to swim into my line resulting in a snag. Normally, I steer clear of them. (it is required by law) When I know there is one in my path. I wait till it gets past. I'm sorry Mrs. Whale. Please accept my apology."
