In the early 80s, Angola, offshore oil, johnny ledet, boss from louisiana decides they want to do some bayou trawling, might be some shrimp in the river congo dont ya know!!
get stores to order a shrimp net, it finally arrives, hey stu get it lined up on the oil cavalier the crew change boat. off we go to the mouth of the congo, go close inshore (by the way this net is tiny!) half inch poly prop lines and the boat going quite slow, holy **** the strain is unbelievable. hey skip slow down, ok tickover, the strain is still unbelievable, lines thrumming. finally say stuff this and try and pull the thing in, hmmm 4 hairy arsed oil field workers just managed it, all we had by the way was a few scrawny minnow type things. The point of the story, even a small trawl is a handful and if you get it full of fish it will in all probability pull your sail boat under!!
