This film is all about sport fishing. It starts out in Northern Michigan, then goes to a lake in New Jersey. Then, the action moves to Miami, showing fishing for sailfish in the Atlantic. Viewers also see bonefishing in the flats offshore and tarpon fishing in the mangroves along the Everglades. Some amazing leaps are seen. This is a good example of 1950s narration. The narrator exclaims to the people on camera, the fish and the audience with slang phrases, exhortations and clever comments.
