When In Doubt, Panic

I will freely admit I'm not very computer smart even being married to a Business analyst in the IT department of the local casino.

So when Yuki sent me the video he took yesterday of me landing the big Brown and it came through sideways instead of up and down I went right to the source.

I emailed Mike Agneta (Troutrageous!) and asked if he knew how to fix it. Of course he did. He said to go to Windows Movie Maker (if I had it on my system) and rotate it. Five minutes later it was properly turned and then I had to figure out how to get it onto this post. 

I tried the Insert Image like I would a picture. Nope, wouldn't work. Tried making it a Word Document and changing it to a jpg file. Nope, wouldn't work. I fiddled with it off and on for about four hours and couldn't get the video on the post.

Then I accidentally set the cursor on the little black icon next to the Insert Image icon and guess what it said? Insert A Video. Don't I feel stupid................

Here it is. 

Now that you've watched the video, the "Oh Shit" comment was mine. Credit where credit is due. 


  1. Good thing Yuki was there to record it! Beautiful fish Mark.

  2. Isn't it great how all the world's problems go away and it's just you and the fish--and Yuki. Fun to watch you having fun.

  3. Why did you say "Oh, sxxt!" at that point?

  4. Great video! I believe I say "Oh Shit" for big fish, too. Haha

    Beautiful fish, and well played.

  5. Folks,
    Did you notice Mark's hat and a white towel on his back in this video?
    The hat is to prevent skin cancer; wet towel to touch fish without harming him.
    He handled the fish so gently, carefully and very quickly released him.
    I'm proud of Mark.
