Biggest Yellowfin Tuna Caught on Rod and Reel 445 lbs

Thanks to Pete Thomas, for breaking the news on the new record tuna ...... of course in Mexican waters, at the Hurricane Bank, the spot where it just so happens we had our 60 ft Hatteras "Shambala" fishing  the same spot, the same day with our very own dockmaster Mario aboard along with captain TJ and Johnny and Stacie Powers......darn that fish could have been ours, but hey we are happy to see these kind of fish coming out of Mexico and getting the fishing world's spotlight focused here. The long range boat Excel pulled into Point Loma this Sunday morning and the scale dock registered 445 lbs, which is the largest tuna of this species caught by rod and reel. This will not qualify for a record though, as the deckhand did handle the rod briefly. Great fish and congratulations to John Petruescu for this magnificent fish caught on his first ever long range trip.
