spearing something like that

Wed, 2010-09-15 22:03

spearing something like that you would have to have a bit of a death wish. would have been one struggle to get that one on board let alone to the surface

i am abit skeptical that he actually went for a ride with the tuna, since alot of things can be fabricated on the net, for all we know it could of been caught on a rope and big hook.

yes i have read that post, but it is the internet still, a fish that big towing you that fast and going deep would blow your ear drums would it not?

i am no keyboard warrior, only stating a fact that its possible it could be a fabricated story? but if its real that takes some serious balls, getting towed by something that big and no chance of slowing down anything soon and hanging on how does one breathe with adrenalin pumping through you? ask yourself that before you call me a keyboard warrior.

Must agree Dicey

Thu, 2010-09-16 07:22

as far as the speed the tuna towed him, I think yes his ear drums would have been screaming, maybe a diver could answer that question.  Personally would love to see these massive tuna swim for another day instead of a trophy for somebody.

Don't think the flesh would be any good for eating, tough or too strong maybe

I am sure a hunting freediver would answer this better, but you will find he will have been set up well with floats and lines in place to tire the bugger out and then surface it using the floats. It looks like it may have been a spine shot looking at the hole in some of the photos, so maybe the fight was pretty short.

think in the print he said he spine shot it.  Just nerves reacting till it died, not a vet but would assume death kick from spine shot

Thu, 2010-09-16 18:04

if i ever got the chance to shoot something like dat (not that i would get the chance but say i did) i wouldnt think twice! i would pull that trigger..

 just cause its big doesnt mean you cant eat it and doesnt mean it wont taste good. i dont see any difference between killing this fish, and a 25kg dhu.  lets assume a smaller dhu taste better how many people would let a 25kg dhu swim another day in order to take better eating one home? not many!!

people complain about catches being a trophy, hey look at all your pics of all your fish dat you have caught are they not a trophy to u? ofcourse dey are its not just about catching the fish and eating it lets be honest for most its the glamour of the species, size and weight.. thats why everyone raves about dhuies.... its the thing to catch but if there wasnt all the glamour behind it, it would just be another good eating fish.

STILLY!

Thu, 2010-09-16 21:36

stilly totally agree about fishing for the future. having said that if i didnt have a dhuie onboard and I was within my bag limit to keep a dhuie and just hypethitcly say it was a 25kg monster, i dont see myself letting it go and that is just me being honest, some people would and thats Y i used the word "most" and "not many" as in most people wouldnt let it go. and that is also my opinion about the "most", people would despute that, but hell lets be honest..

The point I was trying to get at is that obviously people catch fish for fun, for food but its hard to deny that there isnt any glam factor in it aswell otherwise you would have reports and not Brags, and im saying that any half decent fish is a trophy small or big, just because a fish is big doesnt mean its being kept just as a trophy IMO. could be its being kept for food etc im just saying its a trophy non the less.. u hear fisherman goin on about how they got this or that and it was this and that big, this is the glam factor im talking about. and there is nothing wrong with the glam factor in my opinion.

however i obviously DISAGREE if your going to keep a fish only to show off or only as a trophy and do nothing with it that is wrong and that is NOT fishing for the future.
