219 Pound Yellowfin Tuna… with a pole spear
In this interview he tells the story of his 219 Pound Yellowfin Tuna that he shot with a pole spear. One of the things I enjoyed most about the interview was his highly contagious passion for the sport. Not only has he shot some of the most highly sought after fish in the sea but he still cares about people starting out in the sport.
