Just another day on the water
« on: May 06, 2021, 08:51:21 AM »
It took nine hours, but Troy Lancaster got his state record. The 50-year-old angler from Port Aransas outlasted an 876-pound, 121-inch bluefin tuna with a day-long fight on April 13. Texas Parks and Wildlife Department has confirmed the fish as the state’s record.

they refer to the big tunas as cows.  The biggest tuna I ever caught was a little over 60 pounds and it kicked my ass up one side and down the other side of the boat.

A fish that big probably tastes like mud.  Saltwater-mud.

That's what happens up here in freshwater... especially with pike and bass, if they exceed their usual size.

Not at all. These fish swim in the deep ocean constantly moving and eating.  Their meat is very valuable for sushi.  Very fresh tasting
