Charlie Tuna?

Posterboy (or fish) for Starkist Tuna. Always used to try and get caught, but wasn't up to StarKist's standards (sort of like the Foster Farms chickens, another ad campaign which Europeans also have no idea what I'm talking about...)

FWIW, a lot of spearfishermen here on the CA coast catch grief over their sport - how it's inhumane to spear fish, how it's easier to buy it in stores, etc. Defies logic. Why support something that has a high ratio of bycatch when you can selectively take the fish you want?

I mean, if it's that big an issue to you, work on changing the laws and regulations. You won't get too far by criticizing people who are playing by the rules...

[soapbox off]

jky

p.s. LL, you're making me hungry again... Nice catch(es).

Spearfishing is just like going to the supermarket......... pick out what you want for dinner, put it in your bag and enjoy. No by-catch, no waste, and for the vegans there is seaweed....
Everyone is happy.

Thanks Jambo... That's Charlie Tuna... 'fraid I can't take credit...

Our weather has been "variable" this year. I woke up this AM to a gale with thunderstorms. At the moment it's blowing, but mild and sunny. Rain tomorrow, then down to near freezing temperatures over the weekend... It never get's dull!

This weekend we celebrate Queen Victoria's birthday. Being devoted Royalists, most of us call the holiday "May Two-Four"... Many believe we named the day after a case of beer. At any rate, it's the unofficial Start of Summer. Hopefully, it won't snow!

Oi! It's very important to keep you SIB clean and absolutely free of any food scents when using it for overnight camping! Its the last thing you want to use as a bait when you are 80-100 km from the closest launch site!

We're just winding up a long weekend here... Unfortunately, it's been blowing a full gale all weekend... even a few snow flurries overnight. Sigh...
