I have been reading about this kind of fishing down on those islands for 10 years. Add this to by bucket.

mental note: DON'T cut up a giant tuna bc it doesn't fit in the fish box lol

Gotta love a guy who can say "oh well, didn't get the record...but that was some TASTY sushi

Jim,
FWIW Kilsong is organizing a trip on Nor'east to fish for those big boys. I think he still has a couple of open spots.
