Of course this is all theoretical as apparently I can't fish worth a darn. I dragged a lure across the entire Atlantic Ocean and caught nothing. With two handlines, a bunch of line, a goodly assortment of lures, a squirt bottle of cheap Swedish vodka, a couple of gaffs, and other odds and ends the first fish I do manage to catch will be far from free. *sigh*
Well that is the problem, what self respecting fish is going to take the offer of cheap vodka? Offer some good high end tequila or a nice white wine, and they will jump into the cockpit without even throwing out a line out! Remember Starkist is looking for tuna with good taste according to Charlie.
