Thanks kil. Are you Japanese? If so, are you native born Japanese? This also explains your affinity for jigging.

I wish I had your secretary here. The website has a lot of different species of fish I have never seen and I would like to read through the site. I need to do an Asian tour for fresh and saltwater fish.lol Maybe in my old age.

I think his look is a combination of Shock and Exhaustion... 950ft is a long way up to haul nearly 300# ...

Maybe he was thinking ..how am I going to fillet this one and where am I going to get enough baggies?? LoL
