9-16-77 - This was a notable fish in that Carolyn tried to gaff it 5 times with a flying gaff. Each time the hook fell off the end of the stick lying harmless on the fish. In desperation I grabbed an albacore gaff and nailed it. You should have heard all the expletives (deleted). Poor Debbie Epstein never heard such language at her refined home. The boys were used to it. We haven't used a flying gaff on marlin since.
