SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A whale watching boat spotted a whale four miles off the coast of Point Loma entangled in fishing line.
Crews aboard the Privateer Saturday morning received a call that there was a blue whale nearby.
While they were waiting to get a glimpse of the whale, they noticed a fishing line floating so they attempted to reel it in.
Eventually, the whale surfaced but that's when they realized it was already wrapped up in the line.
SeaWorld Rescue dispatched a boat to try and tag the whale so its movement can be tracked.
