    Bonito- table fare or junk fish?

    Are bag type bait tanks bad for the bait?

    My opinion, bait bags are ok for local calm water inshore fishing. Try to take a 1/2 scoop even 20 miles out to a paddy in 2-3 foot or more swells at any speed, and whatever bait might still be alive, will be beat to shit, in all but the most perfect circumstances.

    What size valve should I use?

    Not sure about the valve answer, looking for brass, best to get them from a marine store. You fab that yourself? Planning on setting that on the swimstep? That's going to be a lot of weight in the rear. You driving a Blackman 26? Bio says Fish Machine, the Blackman moniker.

    What makes a Marlin so special?

    I disagree. Compared to many other species, Marlin is only fair smoked and way below tuna, WSB, Dorado and others in taste. Unlike tuna, Marlin are not a schooling fish for the most part. The fun is catching and releasing them unless it's a money tournament, and even then, the minimum length...

    Ok guys here is my side of the story

    Being the first to say you will take the sale, drawing the money out of the bank, and driving half way there, is no guarantee of a sale if someone's butt buddie calls and says 'sell it to me, tell the other jerk I was first' or something like that, if dealing with shady people.
