When they hear about a local fishing competition to catch the biggest fresh water trout, Billy (Verne Graham) and his best friend Jesse (Matthew Aird), two loveable losers if you ever saw any but also two passionate if somehow slacking fishermen, decide to try their luck. And for Billy it's personal, as back when he was a kid, he went fishing at the spot they're about to re-visit, and a trout, the Big Blue, did not only escape him but seemed to actively mock him - and he figures now the time has come to have his revenge on the Big Blue - and win the competition in the process. And to achieve this, Billy comes fully prepared - but despite of the best preparations, everything seems to go wrong, first Billy and Jesse's car runs out of gas, then he has trouble with the bait, and ultimaely his fishing line gets all tangled up - and despite all these obstacles, he catches Big Blue, and killing him gives Billy archaic satisfaction. But it wouldn't be Billy if bad luck didn't stick to him like glue, and in the night right after the catch and before he could show Big Blue to anyone but Jesse - Bigfoot stops by to steal and devour the fish. And suddenly having lost Big Blue is no longer the biggest problem Billy and Jesse face ...


Big Blue: A Fishy Tale is surely enough its very own experience, a shot-on-video tale that meanders between slacker comedy and creature feature (but leans towards the former) and that ever so often breaks up formula and structure to wander off into uncharted territory. And yet, the two central characters, the loveable losers, remain relatable and even likeable throughout to keep one watching, while the humour always stays this side of moronic or gross-out to keep things real enough. And while it's most certainly not the most polished of films, it's entertaining enough throughout to make this a very interesting, slightly off-beat watch.
