I process all of my fish and have problems with YFY over 150# and in the past have donated them to the boat recommended charities.  I do not "donate" YT, wahoo or if I get any on the upcoming trip BFT.  I will give fish to friends that do not fish and have even been known to give wahoo away.

When we lived in Alaska we ate seafood I harvested 5 + times a week and consumed 45-60 sockeye, 200-300 pounds of halibut, dozens of coho and 5-10 king salmon a year.  We also consumed 6 deer, 2 bear, 2 mountain goat a year and when "lucky" a moose would be split with friends.  We harvested 50 abalone (a individual daily limit) 3 times a year and many rock scallops and clams.  Two or three times a year we would harvest geoduck clams too!

We love fresh seafood.

Just underhand it into the wind and let it swim away.

I am going to bookend your trip.  I am on the trip the weekends of the 14-15 and then again the 21-22.  Anyone want to test out the Fin nor Lethal?  I can leave it with you guys on Sunday 6-15 and you can send it back to me after the trip.  You will need a spinning rod though as the cost to ship the rod is expensive.
