I have heard that Nicky was a good harpooner but I am guessing that the thing above him with the wings was helpful.

I could of been one of the kids on the dock in the video. Norman, in the plane, gave me a stack of photos to use for a High school report on Bluefin tuna, some of the pics of them unloading the fish using his tow truck. Peter, Nick's partner, use to hunt with us, told me of using the gun and offered me a job twice.

When running the Joann, they would throw then toss the whole rig out, setup another rig, throw and toss, setup, throw and toss. They would hit several fish in he same school without stopping. A 2nd boat would follow them pulling in the rig filling that boat then filling the Joann.
