In this postcard, a sport fisherman and his family and friends are gathered on a fueling dock on the Eastern Gut of South Bristol to weigh a large tuna that has just been caught. The fish may have been caught off the boat Seaboots, from New York, that is tied at the dock and rigged with sport fishing equipment. The boat in the foreground is an inboard pleasure boat.
