That was awesome, those guys have their system down. That is hard work!

The way they have done it for long time.

Great video.

Commercial Albacore have been caught by Jig Boats like this for a very long time.

Did it here locally when I was a teen and there were still cannaries. Pain in the ass when they start getting over 25#. Or the BET's decided to wreck havoc.

We'd also put 5 rocket jigs on each line a do bonito offshore.

It looks like they have an electrical/hydraulic winch to bring in the larger ones, but I'm sure its still a pain to hand line the larger fishes.

Sorry, but nothing about that looks fun at all. Looks like work, I go fishing to get away from "work."
