I listened for 5 seconds and I figured out why you fish alone.

Cinematic Gold! Your argument with the tuna during the fight reminds one of Santiago and the marlin in The Old Man and the Sea...only slightly more red. Slightly.

Please keep the videos coming. Very entertaining!

Your a bit over the top for my liking. Iv done the solo thing before & it's hard work. You definitely put the meat on the boat. You got my 2 thumbs up

You cussed out, then threw out the catch of the day.
With some rotating rod holders and longer, more Flexible rods, you could have saved those big boys, and a few knuckles too!
The key to successful solo fishing is being prepared!

You went full retard, man. Never go full retard
Check it out. Dustin Hoffman, 'Rain Man,' look retarded, act retarded, not retarded. Counted toothpicks, cheated cards. Autistic, sho'. Not retarded. You know Tom Hanks, 'Forrest Gump.' Slow, yes. Retarded, maybe. Braces on his legs. But he charmed the pants off Nixon and he won a ping-pong competition. That ain't retarded. He was a goddamn war hero. You know any retarded war heroes? You went full retard, man. Never go full retard. You don't buy that? Ask Sean Penn, 2001, "I Am Sam." Remember? Went full retard, went home empty-handed.

I wanna see this guy @3am on Bourbon St after Fat Tuesday...

Kidding aside- what's your angle? You ain't PWT- there was some expensive hardware on that vessel and you obviously know how to fish.
Whatever it is man- you do you. Looked like a good time.
