    This was just a part of a quarter loin. This was the best tasting YFT I have ever eaten.

    Yeah, neither will qualify. Both are monsters though.

    The Excel is a State of the Art vessel they don't use ice! It Barely fit in the saltwater cool tank door! Which is 29 degrees saltwater! They'll reach back to the barn Sunday to know the official weight! Fish was caught on live 10lb Skipjack (Aku) ! The fish was so fat it wouldn't fit threw the Gate so it took 8 guys to lift it over the rail!
    BIG TOAD EH!!!

    No to ice cold brine! To cold not good! I know you can get ice cold brine to below zero that will lower the actual weight! That's why they use the saltwater cool tank which is 29 degree so the fish is still soft and you won't loose weight!

    was agreeing with you, saltwater at 29 degrees is cherry. we always bring our fish down from fight temp before chilling... By brine I don't mean that heavy salty crap the long liners use, just plain old ocean water.
