  • funny- I was just thinking about doing this again tonight. I have some sashimi grade ahi burning a hole in my freezer. That thread is funny. I wonder if Little Steven ever figured out what those japanese characters meant..... :-c

    That sounds like a good dinner in the making. Love tuna steaks, but catching your own must be out of this world for sure.

    It's a long day out of Oregon Inlet. Hope the warm water moves off of VA Beach soon. I just brush with olive oil and sear. The other two here want it well done. I have to leave the dinner table and eat by myself

    Tell them it turns poisonous after medium rare. Well done tuna should be against the law.

    HAHA, just cut their portion about 1/2 inch thick and save the rest for you. Cook them all the exact same amount of time...
    Finally back in the Badger State!

    Freshest Tuna I have ever eaten was when I was station in Japan and we went out deep sea fishing.  Boat Captain took our first catch and make sashimi for the crew... its was amazing -- still warm. Since we shared he also shared his fresh squid... things went downhill after that...

    There is a lot of meat on just one 45# tuna. I usually have a total of 5 on my boat and have limited out ( 3 each ) many times so we share with friends and family. It doesn't get any better than when it has never been frozen. I do like Sushi and fix it before I freeze any of the meat.

    A 45lb tuna!  Good grief.  The one yellowfin I caught in Okinawa weighed 11lbs, and when it hit my line, I thought I'd hooked into a whale.  I'd love to see a pic of the one you reeled in.

    I think the minimum length for yellow fin is 27" from fork to nose. Way too short for us to keep

    How about a nice Swordfish steak.  This is a world record we caught in 1978, 453 pounds, 12'-1", on 50 pound test line.
