Yesterday I got an email from a local fisherman named Mark Soussou. He claims that he was the guy in the video that took the video of the sword fish swimming on the beach last month. Naturally I was excited to find out more details and gave mark a call that afternoon. Sure enough he described it in details. He was just hanging out with some friends on the beach and pretty much swam up to the boat. Since Mark is an avid fisherman, he was aware enough to realize that this was a rare sighting indeed. He didn’t have his good camera with him but he did have his Kodak Playsport and took some video and stills of the phenomenon.

Mark told me that he had a couple more photos and video that would like to send me. Of course I said heck yeah, please do send them over. Thanks Mark!
The swordfish story was interesting enough that it got featured at Bradenton.com. Check it out.
Here a couple stills and more video of the incident. The new video even show a brief underwater video when Mark was able to get close enough.
Well today was another day of spent running around trying to get my life back on track. That track btw hasn’t been easy to stay on lately. I’m about 80-90% done but I have to admit it has been a major pain in the a$$. Especially when the weather has been pretty darn good lately as well.
Today I did get confirmation that I got the a sword fishing photo for the Florida Keys ad campaign. Working with Mark Slatko using my day time sword fish photo. This was a photo of a jumping sword fish caught in about 2000 feet of water off the coast of Islamorda Key on the board one of the boats at Bud and Mary’s Marina.
I guess this is a little bit on the positive side compare to all the bad juju I have been running into lately. Dealing with government agencies for the past twos can turn your attitude really, really negative.
