Tail hooked

We got two fish around 200lb and then on Friday hooked up to another big one which we called at 800lb. As it turned out, the fish was hooked in the tail and as a result was able to put up a remarkable fight. She jumped spectacularly, stripped off several hundred meters of line and eventually headed for the bottom. Unfortunately, while the tail hook gave her freedom to fight it made life difficult for her when she eventually tired as she was being lifted up tail first

She arrived at the surface exhausted and required resuscitation.

We quickly got a rope around her bill and towed her slowly for 20 minutes until we could see she had recovered.

She swam down to the Fighting Chair Saloon, no doubt to relate her encounter with the crazy fishermen on Shaka.
