    SMU is a first class operation owned by a first class guy.

    What they are doing is legal and nothing goes to waste. Take your bullshit and whining somewhere else.

    Striped Marlin stocks are fine. Relax.

    I see smiles, new fishermen being born and several delicious fish dinners.

    What's wrong with that?

    I only kill what I eat, and if these guys are eating what they catch then what the hell is everyone whinning for? I don't see anyone catching a marlin, cutting off the bill, then dumping the rest (as is the practice by some with sharks/fins). Measured conservation is a great thing, but no one should be able to tell some one they can't catch and eat something because they (who live thousands of miles away) have a misguided sense of reality. It's great for the sport that there are those who are so conservation minded. But the sport, especially in HI, is based on food/economy first. If I didn't enjoy eating fish, I probably wouldn't fish at all cause I wouldn't want to potentially kill and waste something I wouldn't eat. I know the Cali guys are a little riled right now... MLPA has left us all a little sore. But don't take it out on the HI guys for doing their thing when it doesn't concern us. They are eating what they catch, loving what they do, and making a living doing it. Who the hell wouldn't love to do that? Let it be.

    I was just going to say almost exactly what MeCrankMate said above. I wouldn't be a fisherman if i didn't like to eat fish. Hawaii isn't the only place Marlin are eaten. As I was reading this post "Dinners, Drive Inns and Dives" visited a place called Blue Marlin Fish House Restaurant and yes a lot of their menu consisted of Blue Marlin. They smoke it just like us. I missed where this restaurant was in the U.S. I just ate Stripped Marlin sashimi and it was great! The meat was orange / pink so they were probably eating shrimp. The meat gets real oily and delicious. The other one that gets like that, is the Short Bill Spear Fish or Hebi as they're called here. I really do believe if you kill something for food its fine but just don't waste any of it! Thank you Scott / MeCrankMate for your post!
