Biggest Tuna of the Year Caught at Punta Gorda

This massive 335 lb yellow fin tuna was caught by local panga fisherman out of La Playita. They caught this bruiser October 15th on 80 lb test, with a dead sardine at the Outer Gordo. It took one and a half hours to get into the panga (that must have been a feat of itself)...the fish was tail-wrapped and drowned and to be muscled up by the guys led by local Sergio Carillo.
The photo says it all....thanks Robin..
