Default Getting paid to fish...LOVE IT !!!!!!

Had a great time at work a while back. Thought I'd share it with you guys. Nice size tuna were everywhere at night, and the Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) were all over during the day. Ended up flying back in with 53 lbs of meat from that job...It was a good 5 days!

I was always told you couldn't bring fish back from working offshore. Maybe they were just trying to scare me. Looks like fun.

Sorry for the delayed response.
But yes you can bring fish back, provided the helicopter is now near it's weight limit. Trust me, you don't want to some guy to find out that HE can't fly home cause YOU want to bring home some fish.
Most of the work we do is in DEEP water. Those particular fish were caught way out in Keathley Canyon. It was a 2hr flight at 130 knots. If I had to guess, those drill ships are probably over 150 miles out.
