Magic Carpet Ride

[pos]04 15n 142 57w
[sp]7.2 kts
[w]E 12 kts
[s]Strange progress. We're going much faster than it feels and also being set to the east by the equatorial counter current.
Sadly my water speed sender is clogged, so I only have speed over the ground data. Approaching ITCZ.
We hooked a giant fish yesterday that just about stripped almost 500 m of 20 kg line of my reel. As I tightened up the drag, the #5/0 hook straightened out and it was gone. I wonder what it was. Big yellowfin tuna? Marlin?
