JD, you guys burn 'em up! Wish I could join you, but once Carolyn found out she didn't have to ride herd at the store.....well.... sFun_eyescan

I'd go as far off the beach as you can. They can't bite if they can't see. Forecast is great, and you have a boat that runs sweet in a pretty ocean. Go get 'em!

Dave, the sun finally came out today, we are getting better in terms of the water table and septic situation. Pool is fine. Good engineering on the install, the water drains away or is buffered 360 degrees.

With no house drains, we've been showering down the street on higher ground. Get home tonight....half the house lights are flickering. Call the electrician, he puts the volt meter on the house feed from the street....the second 110V line in is dead. Nicked line when the fence was installed this summer. Standing water killed it. Power company came and dug it out, steam was rising in the dug hole from the short. They fixed it thank goodness...just now left.

At least we aren't standing on the roof waiting on the helo like our SC brethren.

Very fortunate, all is good!

First off.....Merry Christmas to everyone here. We have a great club. Best to all of you and yours!!

Scott the price depends on how the tuna was taken and prepped.

The Brunswick County NC commerciai boys up here are well-aware of what the Japanese buyers expect for their sashimi grade tuna. Catching is hard enough....but the prep alongside the boat, the proper bleeding out, the correct and preferred method of negating the death enzyme...leads to the final price.

That fish can buy a new Benz if the core sample is up to spec.

One of the things I learned from watching Wicked Tuna was that tuna are actually warm blooded not cold blooded like all other fish and that the bleeding out and cooling off plus the fat content was what delivered the price. A lot of hoky drama on that show but learned some interesting things about tuna.

The boys from Ocean Isle Fishing Center caught three in one day several years back and sold them to the Japs for $78K.

They detailed the procedure they used to bring the highest price.

Get the fish to the boat with a flying gaff to the head, gill plates, or underneath. But
protect the meat. Slice the bottom of his mouth, run a rope through the lower jaw and cleat him off. Swim him slowly alongside the boat.

Take a knife and cut/pierce behind the pectoral fin on both sides. This will bleed him out.When the blood stops, slide him in onto a mat so the flesh doesn't contact the deck.

Here's the neatest part. Behind the head cut a triangle exposing the spinal column/ cord. Take a length of 800 pound mono and run it down the column to the tail. This supposedly prevents the release of the death enzyme to the flesh and sweetens the meat. Then gut and ice ASAP.
