    Well One thing I am really big into is Fishing. Well right now off the NC coast giant bluefin tuna are in season. A few buddies from work and some other buddies and I fish and sell bluefin tuna commercailly. Here is my adventure. We fished every day from 12/27-12/31.

    There is no order to any of theses pictures. Just a jumbled mess

    The relation to Heavy Equipment- The boats have big Cat C32's in them and we had to have a skidsteer lift the fish. Almost put the little tipsey little bobcat on its face

    Yeah thats why I couldnt play around in the auction equipment.

    Yeah that big boy came from about 70 miles off the beach in 68 degree water. Caught him on a dead king mackeral. took 6 hours to bring him in. That was a real battle. Maybe next trip you can come Chris

    He was like batteling a Cat D11 :laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh:

    Had to take turns with him. Any slack line and hes off and we lose some major $$. Fish sell for about $16 per pound
