I talked to a couple guys this summer up there and they said two guys stuck a blue fin right in the harbor off of MacMillan Wharf in P town.

Didn't they get in trouble for this? I thought it was something about permitting or being on land. Can't remember now.

I remember when that happend, it was right infront of the CG station. The guy in the mustang suit is a coastie. They were so awestruck they didn't even ask about permits. I think the wranglers came back and gave those guys a few steaks. And the harpooning off the pier, that happend to but many years ago.

Years ago on Town Cove in Orleans a guy waded out to a tuna thrashing around and was able to get a rope on it and drag it in, made the Cape Cod Times. Turned out the fish was sick!

There men were defiantly reprimanded. Know this for a fact. The cove tuna was fine as I remember. Just disoriented in less than knee deep water.
