Russel O'Neill was the captain, Russell is about the tightest Cap'n you'll find, Harry O Jr. was first mate, the two of them were pretty hard core...reel fisherman!


no, that's Pedigo...Harry O's about 15 yrs younger than Pedigo, we fished the Journeyman in February, nothing over 100# unfortunately.


Who was the boat captain ?

Shan M.

I lost one of these up here in RI about 25 years ago, when the mate hit the line with the deck harpoon on his THIRD attemp! It just sank into the deep blue, no kicking at all. The Yellow fin tips on that fish were behind the tail! I wanted to jump in after it, but my father was fighting a 175# Mako on the bow of the boat at the same time. It was a great of fishing even without that massive Yellow; 2 Bluefin "Mistakes", 7 smaller yellows (one over #175) and that Mako.


Sad day for the fish...

The guy on the left is deckhang Harry Okuda Jr. Not Robert Petigo.
