Tuna Fish

  Just caught a Tuna Fish in the Gulf of Aqaba Red Sea while working on the offshore drilling rig C E Thornton.

There whre plenty of fish to be caught but you then had to pull them up out of the water 60 feet from sea level to deck level.

And you was also lucky if you got a whole one because the Sharks used to like to have a bite as you where pulling them up and quiet often it was only the head that you was left on the hook.

It ended up being barbequed cajun style by our coonas toolpusher.
It was served with salad and washed down with grape juice if my memory serves me right.
