A Crew of One

A Crew of One

Marlin fishing is intrinsically, almost compulsorily, a team sport, one that requires a boat captain, mate, and fishing crew for the 16 million deep-sea anglers in America. But Carlos Bentos has won dozens of billfish competitions-working completely alone. In fair weather and foul, he single-handedly maneuvers his boat for twelve, fourteen, sixteen hours a day, days at a stretch, at the same time spotting, catching, and releasing unharmed marlin weighing hundreds of pounds.

How does he do it? And why? In A Crew of One, Bentos describes what compels him to troll solo a hundred miles offshore hoping for the strike of the fish called “the apex of deep-sea fishing.” Through one man’s extraordinary experiences of solitary adventuring, this oceanic A River Runs Through It offers a new way of looking at fishing, at self-reliance, and at the mystique of being alone at sea.
