Damn they flip it in the boat and its life-less. Ask Asterisk about that 90lb or so yellowfin I caught and we flipped in the boat while everyone was sleeping. Woke everyone up pretty quick. Him and I had never caught a tuna before. We get it in the boat and its going crazy, so I decided just to kick it in the fish box in the floor of my buddy's brand new Invincible. I didnt know u had to kill them, it just about broke the hatch on his fish box. My buddy's cousin woke up and was like "*** are yall doing? U gotta kill him!"
