  1. It would feel kind of scary because you could fall out of the kayak and be stuck out at sea. He felt excited to catch a marlin. It would depend on how long you have been out on sea or if you know how to use a kayak it is dangerous because you could catch a shark and it flips the boat. He felt like he caught the biggest marlin in the world and feels good of his achievement.

    1. It would feel scary because you could be swiped away from your kayak into the ocean and stained for days without water or food or a shark could attack the boat and tip it over. He felt like he was catching a shark for a minute then he saw a marlin and he was really excited because he court a huge marline and wanted to reel it in from his kayak and take a photo. It depends on the weather conditions if it’s flat and how long he has been out on sea on a kayak. He felt like he court a world record marlin and it was video and always go out to sea with a friend!!

  2. Explain how the man felt when he was reeling in the fish
    I would feel frightened because I would have thought it was a shark. If it was a shark it could have taken me further out to sea.

    – Do you think this activity is dangerous? Why /Why not?
    It is because there could be a huge wave and tip the kayak over and he could drown

    – Explain how the man felt after he caught the marlin
    Awesome! I would feel awesome too if I caught a marlin!

  3. – Explain how the man felt when he was reeling in the fish.
    I’m inferring that the fisherman would have been ecstatic because a Marlin is massive and he caught the Marlin with a little fishing rod. THAT’S CRAZY! If I were the fisherman I would feel so proud of myself. That Marlin is IMMENSE! Wouldn’t he have sweat coming down from his forehead and around his lips, because I know I would. That’s hard work!

    – Do you think this activity is dangerous? Why/Why not?
    YES! IMMENSLY DANGEROUS! This man could have been eaten by a shark ten times the size of his kayak. He could even run into a massive storm, and that can lead to a massive wave, and that can lead to the fisherman drowning and then death. And I’m 110% that I don’t want to die. Who wants to die? NO ONE! So why is the fisherman going out to sea being dragged by a Marlin that could lead you to a killer storm!

    – Explain how the man felt after he caught the fish.
    I’m inferring that the man would have felt so pumped. If I were him I would keep on fishing, trying not to kill myself, or go and try find some amazing animals to watch such as a Whale breaching.

    He probe felt fantastic because he probe haven’t seen one
    before out or sea in a kayak. He probe was scared because
    he didn’t know where it was going.

  6. I think it would be frightening to go out to the sea and go fishing. I would go on a boat but a kayak. I would feel fantastic to catch a fish that big. I think he is made to go out that fare to a fish. He could of fall of the kayak and could of drowned in the water or get eaten by a shark.

  7. I think the man would feel very scared because you could fall out of the Kayak because of MASIVE SWELLS which would knock he’s Kayak over and he’ll suddenly realise that he’s stuck in the middle of nowhere.

    It would also be very dangerous because he’s reeling in a 3 meter fish which is twice the weight of his Kayak and he would be surrounded by GIANT Great White Sharks.

  8. I would be petrified if I was out in sea in a kayak because you will never know what can happen to you or never know what can happen/swim up.
    If I was reeling in a monster marlin like that I would be happy and scared at the same time because you are out in a kayak in the sea reeling in a marlin that big and the sea is that big and deep.
    I think the activity would be dangerous because there is all different kinds of different creatures in that deep of a sea like that.
    I think the man felt exited and nervous at the same time after catching a big marlin like that.

  9. I would feel very scared because I would not know if a storm is coming and the fish that I want to caching mite drag me to sea.
    I think the man felt excited because he caught a marlin.

  10. If I was Tommie’s position I would feel terrified because the kayak is so small and it could easily tip over if the weather changed and a massive wave came and toppled me over. It also be scary if the kayak got a hole in it and the boat started to sink! AAAAAHHHHHH!

  11. The man would of felt tired because the fish wasn’t giving up without a fight.
    Also the man would have been saw because the fish kept pulling and pulling so the man hat to use his Hand to pull what would have made it saw.
    The man would have been thinking in his head how big what does it look like but at the same time he would of be worried if it’s to strong to heddle .But he kept going because he didn’t want to waste the bate and people don’t think at the time so he would of kept going.

  12. Describe what it would be like to be stuck out at sea on a kayak. It would be very DANGEROUS because there are scary and dangerous things such as Jelly fish, octopus, whales and big scary sharks. Petrified because you don’t know what you are going to end up when you have been dragged around the ocean from a marlin. I would feel nervous and scared because a marlin is a big fish and a kayak is a small boat and the kayak could easily tip over.

    Explain how the man felt when he was reeling in the fish. My thinking is nervous at first because he did not know what was going to happen when his reeled it up. So say if it was going to bite him or hurt him really bad or attack him. After he got over his nerves a bit he felt happy saying I really done this I caught a fish this big I can’t believe this. I think he also felt scared because when it was far away it looked bigger and if he saw how big it was he could be how worried how big is it and if it is going to sink the kayak.

    Do you think this activity is dangerous? Why/Why not? Yes I think it is really dangerous because if his boat tips over from how much pressure the marlin is pushing he could drown. I also think it is really dangerous because the waves if there lightning or a big thunder storm there could be big waves and it could knock his kayak down. My why is that it could not be dangerous sometimes because if there were no waves or thunder storms they could be able to do it. It is still very dangerous.

    Explain how the man felt after he caught the fish. I think he felt exited and very happy because he caught his very first marlin and it is a very big fish. He would I felt proud of his self from doing this and making it though this big disaster. His heart would have been beating really fast of nerves. Because his body is all shaky and scared and worried but now he is absolutely happy. That he achieve his mission

  13. I don’t think it is dangerous because it is just like going fishing escaped he court a bigger fish.

    I think he felt fearful because it looks like he has court a fish like that.

  14. I infer that the men felt scared because he could have fallen in to the water and got eaten by shark. He could have been surprised by a big wave.

  15. I think that the activity would be dangerous depending on the conditions. Usually being stuck out at sea would be dangerous especially in a kayak because it could capsize, there is also the danger of sharks and also large swells and thunder or electric storms.
    When he was rolling in the fish he would probably be wondering what type of fish it was or how big is it or will it rip me out of my kayak out into the deathly cold ocean that is haunted by sharks and deadly creatures. He also might have felt the fear of his kayak capsizing and falling to the bottom of the deep ocean and drowning. When he finally won the fight he would have been relived.

  16. I think it is very dangerous because he might be surrounded by sharks and the kayak is small and he might fall out of the kayak.

  17. I infer that the man felt very scared because he could fall over off the kayak because all the waves splash on to him and tip over and get eaten by a shark with his friend depend if they stay there for too long.
