But absolutely amazing the size of not just the fish but also the school, great work out on the guns too, that's for sure

Cheers, Bug

WoW! ...and to think this was a job they did everyday. Ditch the gym, go catch some tuna.

So going by the title, this vision is from 1985... do they still catch the tuna this way or is it all net caught now?

Great vid seen one similar awhile ago.
Definitely wouldn’t need to go to the gym. That would be hard work!
