    Thought I would demonstrate to you young folks why you should try to find the fountain of youth so no fish will ever put a hurt on you, regardless of size. The first picture is me just before getting aboard the Tuna Loco. The second is what poor old Uncle Russ looked like after a decent, though not large, yellowfin got through with his pathetic old butt. (It really is amazing what a hard night of fishing will do to a man.) The third was a pretty good day and night's work. Captain Eddie and my ship mates deserve some very small amount of credit, but mostly it was me. ;)

    Nice fish on the board....
    I think you're right....they put a hurt on you regardless of size....and....I think they put a hurt on you regardless of age. As I creep into becoming an old fart...I try to remember that the YFT put a hurt on everyone.

    You were certainly a nice looking young man before the Tuna took their toll. Though I do notice that you're sitting by the gas pump while the rest of the crew loads the boat.

    BTW, that was a great trip and I can't wait to get down there again.
