153 Miles and and 18 Hour Steam Dave Jewell and Crew Land Two Fat Bluefin Tuna

Heading out a couple of days ago Dave and his crew head out for an 18 hour steam of  153 miles to catch themselves a nice pay day. One 800 lber and one 650 these tuna will command a nice price in Japan.

When Dave headed out he was a bit nervous because where they have to go to catch these fish it’s a long way out and there’s no place to run and hide if a storm whips up.  It is where there are warm ocean currents and cold water intersecting and it can produce nasty storms seemingly out of the blue and without much warning.

    They don’t command a nice price here in the U.S.?

  5. Damon says:

    Nice, but I remember when some of these guys were children in the neighborhood. I am not sure I am entirely thrilled by their being driven out to Georges for fish for tuna because of restrictions on their regular target species a reasonable distance from port with small inshore boats. It must be fun though.
