One of my facebook friends posted this picture the other day, he's tuna fishing off the coast of Prince Edward Island, Canada. He made a comment, the Captain of the boat told him, something like this: "There's not a fish out there worth your life." That water does look pretty rough.
I just read Charlie's facebook post again, he's fishing out of North Lake marina, far northeastern tip of Prince Edward Island. Nearest town is Souris. He said the blue fin tuna would get up to 10 feet, and weigh 1,000 pounds.
To quote him, the Captain said: It ain't worth your life.
Apparently, a lobster boat went down a week or so before, said they'd lost 2 of the 3 man crew.
Charlies lives down in the next county, but owns property up on the mountain where I have trail cameras #2 and #3.
Next time I talk to him, I'll ask what a trip like that costs. He caught one the other day, not sure what it weighed, but it was a big fish! He's been posting some pretty pictures.
