    Caught this sucker this morning

    Went out today (Boxing Day) for an early morning fish in Rarotonga and caught this beauty, 20kg Mahimahi, my arms are buggered. Cruised round two fads trying to hook some tuna and came up empty handed so headed out a little further, spotted some birds and trawled thru them hooking this bugger.

    Good one! I've seen videos of people catch these fish on YouTube and wondered what they were.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!

    Great fish and beautiful eating. Only ever caught one (a 14kg bull outside Whangaparoa harbour) but they are a fish too remember. Aerobatic and colourful.
