Bora Bora Tuna Fishing

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

These are some images of our fishing trip with Sam our new friend who’s family owns Bora Bora Marina among many thing as their linage on Bora Bora runs to the time of Captian Cook.  JR is shown fishing for Tuna with drop weights at 600 foot depths. Fishing like this was a mindblower.  Sam would bait on a hook one sardine and wrap maybe a dozen more around a brick with the line with a release knot, throw it overboard and wait for it to get down to the bottom and release the knot by pulling on the line with a jerk, 5 minutes later…..well lets just say the fish jump into the boat, as after about 20 minutes. your back in the harbor preparing your catch.
