    I have owned several boats already and I agree with you. I was sad to see all of them go. But there are always periods where I go boat-less for a while, so it's nice to have a few friends with boats I can fish on.....lol.

    "Not ahi" (Arik). Wikipedia: Yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares) are a species of tuna found in the pelagic tropical and sub-tropical oceans of the world. Yellowfin are often marketed as "ahi" from a Hawaiian name." There is no 100 lb. reference provided to qualify as ahi.

    So let me get this straight - you are claiming that ahi is a separate species of tuna?


    LOL

    Hawaii Seafood (source): "In Hawaii, ahi refers to two species, the yellowfin tuna and bigeye tuna. These are caught from 3 lbs. to well over 200 lbs. The larger fish are preferred due to a higher fat content". Again, there is no reference to only 100 lb. fish or above being called ahi. Must be a local, informal "rule" among Hawaiian anglers.

    I read somewhere that once these Mexican fish (clearly a different species than Ahi) actually begin to taste like In-N-Out cheeseburgers once they reach the magical weight of 200lbs.

    Lmao

    Any truth to the rumor that the Hawaiian ahi tuna are building a wall to keep the fake Mexican ahi out of Hawaiian waters?

    My boat has been out of commission this entire summer and it's killing me......I doubt I'll ever be without a boat. :)
