Pro Kayaker Howard McKim was taken for a wild ride while shooting an upcoming kayak-fishing film, according to While cameras were rolling, McKim was taken for a five-hour, eleven-mile ride on the open sea by one monster marlin (estimated at 300 lbs). This isn't the first man vs. beast battle aboard a kayak; check out last month's footage of goose vs kayaker.
