Dave Brown returned to Grenada and had some fun this morning.. First up was a 100 lb yellowfin tuna - Dave's first of that species - but after half an hour on 80 he decided first was also last for nthis day so we went after lighter action and for once the fish co-operated with the plan.. he caught our smallest ever sailfish (looks big in the pic but note the tiny 4" rapala in its jaw!) at about 8lb - we didnt tag it fearing the tag was not proportionate to the fish' body. The rapala was attached to Dave's Shimano spinning outfit holding 300m of 15lb line..
