Makes perfect sense to me.

It simply dismisses the idea of early humans as one step above "ape men" who go from tree to tree looking for something to munch on or at the very least pushes that vision way back into our evolutionary past.

The ability to formulate and execute a plan - ANY plan - is indicative of rationality.

"Parrotfish and unicorn were probably caught on baited hooks ... but tuna are deepwater, fast-moving fish. Tuna and trevallies were probably caught by lure fishing," O'Connor said.


The last paragraph of the story.

I pointed that out earlier kb, that may conjure up images of a felt hat full of fishing flies etc but in reality that term covers a mulitude of sins.
probably caught by lure fishing


Probably, ie, no evidence in support, simply stating a lure does not explain how the fish was actually retained. For example, fishing with a torch over the side of a boat then harpooning it would fulfill that statement to a 'T'.
As would trolling with a live bait followed by harpooning.
Frankly I wish these people would stop making such useless comments.

Hey, come on now.

We all know the need for headlines to feed funding.

And what would people like us do without the stories to argue about?

My rotator cuff won’t let me play shuffle board.
