    Got to laugh at last nights episode!
    The annual “Googan” episode.
    I guess if you’re like Rick on Pissa, catch a fish illegally out of season, drag it behind a truck through the streets and dump it in the woods....... that makes you a professional or commercial

    I never thought that trolling out in the woods with a tow truck could pay off with a 400 pounder. That's one captain that really knows his tuna! :D

    It just goes to show that there is no bait fish left in the ocean. The tuna are now chasing squirrels in the woods. :D

    I don't think they were enforcing that 1/4 mile spacing between boats on the SW Corner when I was fishing years ago.;)

    When they were filming the 2nd or 3rd season (1st one with Hot Tuna); we had taken 2 fish off a particular spot on the mud hole during a slow week. Came back the next day & Tyler was sitting there. W/o us even saying anything, he offered to slide over; but we were able nuzzle into a spot where we could both fish, tight but comfortably.

    2 hours later (just before the slack) here comes a boat that rhymes w/ "County Punter" & w/o a word to either of us, he drops right in between. The way he was bitching the whole rest of day about being "crowded"; I was sure we would end up as googan footage...

    Tyler got 3 tuna last night solo (no mate); hooked up with a double and handled them both like a boss. He's an excellent fisherman!

    I have never fished for Bluefin and have to ask a very dumb question; What is an average time to boat a 300ish pound fish? This show does not give me a good sense of the real fight that's involved. It either goes from "We're on!" to "Take a shot!" or the fight clock is running for hours and hours. I have to assume reality is somewhere in between for the average catch. To land a double while fishing solo is something to be proud of - no matter what the name of your boat is.

    Average time for a 300 # could be from 45 min. to hour. Sometimes more. Some of the bigger fish up to 2 hrs. and once in a while even 3 or more hours. (Very seldom)

    All depends on the attitude of the fish. We caught a 600 lber a few years back that took 10 hours to land and the year before that we caught a 900 lber that we had tail roped in 42 minutes. Our quickest fight was a fish around 300 lbs that were landed in 10 minutes. For the most part old mud is spot though.
