An absolutely amazing look at how incredibly good the fishing was at this island, before it became a marine sanctuary. There is no fishing allowed at the island any longer, but back in the day... was about as good as it gets. Yellowfin over 200 pounds inhaling the baits just feet from the swim-step, wahoo going airborne chasing kite baits 20 feet in the air, and a crew almost too exhausted to put another hooked bait in the water.
