Do you ever release Marlin??
or 5 pound Dorados??
you know, we don't come down to where you work and slap dicks out of your mouth, so we would be happy if you didn't tell us how to run our fishery. and i know with your vast experience in "BIG GAME FISHING" that the pic with the blue flag and the red "t" looking flag does'nt stand for "martini time" that is all.

congrats start me up, looks like you guys are doing allright in a tough economy.

why u mainland guys always gotta ask us about releasing our fish?? we eat the damn thing! feed the family, feed the friends. one thing we don't do is waste the fish! a lot of people make a living off fishing. and they aren't taxidermist!

well...releasing marlin doesn't make you a better person or fisherman, it just makes you an inexperienced gaffer...if you don't like pics of dead marlin and other dead fish of various shapes and sizes don't waste your (our) time on the Hawaii board...

tight lines & bloody decks,

well Im an eastcoast fisherman and release all of our billfish but our fishery isnt the same on the eastcoast or california as what the hawiians have for one thing. And another and most importantly the fish are being eaten so why is it alright to kill a shit load of whites and blues over here for tournament money and bitch about hawiians keeping the fish for food. Not to mention a chicken dolphin(small mahi)is damn good eating and only a handful were caught. Anyway nice collection of pics.

Keep it simple. My elders always told me "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything". Otherwise you got a fat lip..It all boils down to "respect". Especially if the other guy is bigger than you are.
