Description
This film was shot by Mr. and Mrs. E.W. Dutton off Stuart, Florida. It shows manta rays and a dolphin jumping over the fishing line.

A man-o-war bird steals a gull's meal. Next are shots of the fishing boats in great swells as a storm blows up, but they keep on fishing and the narrator waxes poetic about sport fishing.
