This was a Labor Day weekend to remember! Julia was lucky enough to snap a rare photo of the furry-chested murman mid breach (pictured above) and we also helped catch a nice size ahi. We headed out of the harbor on our friend’s boat around 7am and by 8:00 our fish was in the cooler. I videotaped the ordeal while Julia steered the boat and our neighbor directed the show. It was the only catch of the day, but we still trolled around following the shearwater birds in hopes of a marlin. To cool off we stopped in the middle of the ocean right around the 1000 fathom line (approx. 6000 ft) for a swim. Check out the video and pictures to see how this 170 pound tuna was skillfully reeled in and made ready for sushi night.

  1. WoW!! We loved watching both the videao and slide show! The whole time Dad was saying My kids at school would love to see this! Dan would love to see this! Lori and George would love to see this! Guess we will be encouraging a few more people to check your blog. I was just thinking this am that I am so happy to be able to see what all you two are up to and Dad just said it was almost like being there. I would rather actually have the taste experience as well, but maybe we will just have to go out for ahi in your honor! Love you, Mom
