    Local Guy Catches the Big One

    Stumbled upon this article...turns out the guy who caught the fish lives just a few miles from here. I suspect a 500 pound yellowfin puts up quite a fight.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    I suspect he's going to get awfully tired of tuna sandwiches before that's all gone.

    I read a lot of speculation on another site about that. The consensus was that the fish was probably already sold to the highest Asian bidder before the boat hit the docks.
