    Yeah we have been getting alot of rain! This is the first time I heard Tuna going up the river! I know Ulua go up rivers! During big rains the river mouths open up which make brackish salt water in the river! I don't think Tuna can live long in it! Merry Christmas!

    I am going to believe this because it does not sound unbelievable.
    It does sound incredible. I wish I could witness the event.

    A story was published several years ago in HFN of an Ahi caught in a river month. So yes its possible.

    A friend got a photo from a friend in florida that was cast netting mullet in a river.
    The guy said to his bro that was netting with him, I swear I just saw a yft chasing some of those mullet, so they see it again both throw the nets and one gets a 30lb yft in a cast net in a river in florida.

    Yellow fin in florida are pretty far off the coast ,so I think it's totally possible in hawaii. I saw the picture pretty crazy.

    Pake Ahmow said:
    It true and it happens from time to time, Kailua bay at the castle point end last year something like a 30 pound ahi caught by a fillipino gardener while cleaning yard' he hacked it with a machete

    he also said:
    Here's a good one' a few years ago, this guy was fishing on his jetski about a mile out and saw something floating, moving around about a quarter mile away from him, he coudnt tell what it was so he moved closer to investigate, when he got a closer look it turned out to be a 100pnd wild pig!
    The guy amazed that this pig was so far away and outta place, being a pighunter himself he pulled in his lines and got out a tow rope got it around the pigs neck and brought it in to shore! HA HA HA! True story, somewhere near Hau'ula on the windward side of oahu

    like is good yea ?

    There was a bluefin caught way up a creek in the Northeast a few years ago. The guy was fined I think for having a fish below the legal size.

    Interesting stuff. Even crazier than that Youtube video of the guy catching a shibi while whipping from the shore in Waianae.

    I always say if it doesn't make sense then it must be true. Let's see some pics that would be awesome.

    Someone a couple years ago said they were fishing the SD river for big mouth and a dying dodo floated by him. I think he said in the MV area. So, either someone kept one alive and threw it in the river or it swam upstream until the fresh water got the best of it. Who knows, there are butts and other sea critters in the river all the way up to fashion valley at high tide.

    WOW...this thread got me wondering so I googled freshwater tuna and it led me to lake Nicaragua. Apparently its 100 by 50 mile lake and only like 100 foot elevation. its not very deep but every site that pulled up said that how every many thousands of years ago as the land rose and sea went down many trapped species of the ocean were there and over the long long time adapted physically to the desalination. It says on MULTIPLE sources there are freshwater tuna there along with sharks and other species...I cant find any great articles though worth sharing..if anyone knows anything please do share

    There's a word in Spanish- pendejada -that applies here.

    In fact Lake Nicaragua does have access to the Caribbean, there were/are no fucking freshwater Tuna and the dictator Somoza had all the Sharks killed sometime in the last century.
