    So I fished with geofish, Kevin (KP Fishin) & my co-worker (Rose) that says she only wants to fish for an hour.
    Had the greatest time! geofish set Rose up with his own gear, coached her & had a wealth of patience that I've never seen by anyone. Kevin & I were joking that it's a good thing he's coaching her while we fished:emoji_smile:
    She started to get the hang of it & caught a few, even a small hali. Of course she wouldn't touch any of the fish but it was so cute & funny by the way she squeals while handling the fishing pole:emoji_joy:priceless.
    Definitely a blast!
    So here's my question...I think geofish and Kevin was pulling my leg when they said that if I catch my first tuna I have to eat its heart?!!? That doesn't even make sense! Why!?! :emoji_persevere:

    What is the sense in that??? "If you want to catch more tuna eat the heart"?? Does that apply to all species of fish or is it specifically tuna??

    Darn It! I was freakin sure geofish was pulling my leg!

    Btw...he was so awesome coaching my coworker that she ended up fishing with us the whole time until it was time to pull in. I cannot thank him enough.

    I did that with 2 other crew members during a charter. There is a video somewhere but it was about 25 years ago.
