Their Boat Is Flooded as a Live Box When the men have loaded their craft almost to the gunwales, they head toward open water a dozen miles or more beyond the reefs. There hovering gulls direct them to schools of tuna weighing three to ten pounds apiece. Bailing live bait overboard, the men fish with short lines on bamboo poles. Silvery, sardine-shaped hooks carry neither barb nor bait. Hungry fish, striking swiftly, are yanked into the boat and released in one smooth motion. + Up comes the seine. The boat's grizzled master inspects its yield.
