I was looking for a photo for Paul's Blue thread and came across this from 3 or 4 years ago. Gave me a laugh, the day Tom caught a fish with his hands...

The real story... he busted off a kingfish on a rock, They fight hard and go for obstructions to do just that. We'd been fishing a school of hundreds of them. Catch and release that day.
So we eyeballed the spot and went back for his wetsuit. When he swam down he found the fish had wound the line around a rock and kelp patch.
So it was a matter of un hooking him and sending him on his way...

It does make hand-fishing for catfish seem tame.
