    Just a quick question. Back in early November Fisherman's Canning was only taking a maximum of 150lbs of tuna per angler in trade for cans. They said it was because their freezers were full and they were having trouble finding a buyer. Does anyone know if that problem has been resolved, or do they still have a ,limit on what you can trade for cans. Any info will be appreciated since I'm headed out 19 March and would sure like to know how to plan (assuming I catch anything at all). Thanks in advance.

    They'll can up your catch. It's not cheap, but, damn it's good.

    Be a smart idea to call Fisherman's Landing before your trip to make sure. As of this month they have a new agreement with Bumble Bee. You should be O.K.
