Choosing Bluefish Over Tuna

March 26, 2005 By: Marshall Cutchin

Reminds me of my “one large tarpon per year” rule. This Delaware guide would rather not spend his money on chiropractors and heavy tackle. “Orchestrating such a trip is a lot of work in itself. If or when a big fish is actually hooked the lucky anglers charged with fighting it to submission is likely going to learn a few things about what sweat and sore muscles are all about. It’s not uncommon for me to have customers travel hundreds of miles and spend thousands of dollars to catch a fish that, while fighting it, they continually cuss and swear at, and then part-way through it all hand the rod off to someone else to finish the battle because they’re too exhausted to do it themselves.” On DelmarvaNow.com.
