He should fly that tuna to Japan. They are paying $100 U.S. per pound of tuna. That's a $60,000 fish!
An 800 lb'er was caught here a few years ago and the captain of the boat radioed for a helicopter, which came and got it, flew it to the airport where a rental plane was waiting, and off to Japan it went.
Many years ago during a marlin tournament I hooked into what many commented that I had lured a Big Eye.
Went straight to the bottom. Spooled me out and the reel got so hot I could not touch it without burning the fingers. As always a good fishermen has a beer on the side for sipping while fishing. Picked up the brew and poured it on the reel to cool it off. The fish finally snapped a 110 pound line. True story, not a fishing tale.
I quit fishing and sold our boat, lot of respect for those big fish. Can we say JAWS boys and girls ...
OK, sold the boat because of my business travel, not the fish. But the above fishing adventure was true.
