Maybe give the guy 24 hours to "man up" and hear his side of the story. His name, hailing port, boat manufacturer, hull id, etc. are available through an internet search. At least his Huntington Harbor based boat is current on his registration. BTW, the story will be available shortly on Sunday's LTH archive. The "Affliction" was cited twice, once during the Dave Hansen report, once perhaps a half hour earlier.

What happened?
An angler on the "Searcher" hooked up a 200 lb.-ish bluefin, I believe at night. The Affliction was fishing about 200 ft. or so upwind and snagged the hooked fish. The Affliction gaffed the fish and took off with the big fish and the Searcher's angler's lure. The Searcher attempted to communicate through VHF during the battle and there was no response from the Affliction. You can hear it from the source the first hr. of LTH this morning, maybe midway through the 7 am hour, and then again when Dave Hansen gives his two cents about the incident.

What is LTH?
Let's Talk Hookup. 7 am to 9 am every Saturday and Sunday. Been listening since about 1992.https://www.letstalkhookup.com/. Go to the archive, about 37:35, 7 am-8 am. Also, 8 am-9 am about 20:30. There is a "snake" side to the story, but it's a bit humorous at the same time.

    I've seen this happen quite a few times on sportboats, maybe not on a 200lb fish but during hot bites/run n gun type fishing this kinda stuff happens.

    Whether it was the boat I was on or the other boat I've never seen either party return a fish or the 5 jigs/hooks they just cut off.
