Anyone watch this show? I know a lot is probably staged but I like the fishing aspect of it. I can't believe one fish can earn you close to $10000.00. Unreal.

It looks like a lot of fun. I have never been on the big pond but would love to someday.

The characters and circumstances are very real. No question about it, having retired here from RI know the “Blue Fin” passion. Would fish the same banks they do now except the bay, we were out of Point Judith (New Port area). Yes the fish do bring “big bucks” my last fish was 101” 701# and brought in $8,700.00, that was in 1989. You call it in and the broker would meet you at the dock, do a biopsy, load it in a ice coffin and off it would go to Logan AP and be on the auction block the very next morning in Japan. The blues were more plentiful then, up until that time a factory ship would locate just outside the limit and would pay you CASH. That was until the feds got involved; now you need a license and must bring them to the dock. You think you protect your deer and turkey “honey holes” ….. Try these guys on. The only difference, we used a number of lines as well, but fought them from a fighting chair not out of rod holders. Just met a guy from MA last week and he had the same thought. Back then Maco shark would bring $5.00 > $5.50 # back at the dock. Maco was like swordfish, tastes/looks the same and a lot more common and one big time fight. Try sitting on a rocking boat throwing chum over board in 90 + degrees all day. Kind of like sitting in a stand all day without the stink! Miss it a bit though.
