Re: Fishing

A buddy does many deliveries to Bermuda and the Caribbean. He has what resembles a hose reel with zillion pound test on it. It clamps to the pushpit. He pays it out and just cruises along. When a fish bites (and one always does eventually on multi-day passages), they just drag it until it gives up and they reel it in. I've seen pics of tuna and other species. It's not a Sunday morning fishing trip to get your mind off things, it's more a commercial approach to finding food.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
