This time of year, big yfts, blackfin tuna and sharks school up around the Gulf’s shrimp boats. As this video shows, sometimes the fish snap at just about anything.
I was fortunate to participate in such a frenzy about two years ago, post-Deepwater Horizon oil spill. It was great to see these big fish return. In the video, we see one large tuna satellite-tagged and released. Newman's email with the link said three more tags were deployed this past week — two on fish over 160 pounds and one on a 120-pounder.
