Yep, it would be. However, if you get another, and bleed it, gut and gill it, and slurry it immediately, the most delicious of all is the belly meat. It has the highest fat content and is the most prized part of the flesh, but also the most delicate. We had to take great care not to bruise the belly as we landed fish before killing them. Our aim was to complete this process in under 1 minute if at all possible, to get the best price in Japan.
Regardless VC, your catch is a great one and I hope you can succeed again another time.
One trick we used when there were quite a few big fish about and when we did not have a longline out, was to drop a series of baited 30 ft dropper lines each attached to large buoys around a feeding workup. Empty containers were no good because the fish were so powerful they could take a 20 litre container deep enough to implode it, so we had to fill them with a styrene mix so they remained buoyant. Sometimes it would take several minutes for a hooked fish to return close enough to the surface for us to spot and then chase the buoy. Anything less than 20 litre capacity buoy was a waste of time and the rope and dropper trace had to be very strong. We had some exciting chases in these circumstances. Sometimes sharks became a problem, attacking hooked fish, but it happens regardless of the catch method. It gets hard to like sharks when you see them destroying 2-10 grand in front of your eyes.
