Pete,

How thick and brittle was it? I'm no expert but I have butchered a few tuna and that just looks like a normal piece of cartilage that you find along the spine/bloodline of the tuna to me.

I am not sure but I think a SSN was a required field when I got the CT license for this fall (only $16 for non-res at the time). If thats the case it would be pretty easy to weed out the duplicates...

Drag a dead tuna tied to a kayak back to shore often enough in those waters and you probably will end up with a white or mako on the line.

In my experience Skok's Pheasant Flounder or Caolo's adapted merkin are both killer imitations. Skok's lands like a feather on a pillow and sinks like a rock. Caolo's tends to make a slightly bigger...
