    We decked a 225# bft at around 9am, then got a double hook up. The second fish to hit the deck really made the other two look very small. Would have swore it was over 400, it didn’t fit our 84” kill bag and stuck out another 12”. Weighed in at 360.
    stoke to boat another 300+ Bft.
    thanks to my buddy Billy kelleman for the hot numbers.

    Great shots.... great fishing for sure. Happy to see you got your share today. Kite fish? Now you guys know where (father kite) Capt George Farnsworth would go.... in the day.... to "secretly" catch the Big BFT..... he was know for. He would leave before the others would wake ....heading West. PRAISE from on high for sire!! Great job boys.

    If I’m not mistaken anyone can pay a fee to be a part of that connection.q
    Well worth it. it’s almost cheating. Tuna has fins and can be anywhere, whenever they want. It’s like bait, you never leave the dock giving those bait guy $60, why would you leave the dock without jack sparrow compass. Intel ain’t free boys, subscribe to your local fish intel: fish dope, Billy kelleman, etc… these guys put in the time so us googans can catch fish.

    Hate to be stupid....but if I see a few more 300# plus fish.... I'm gonna ask what the I.G.F.A. record is for pacific bluefin? I believe we are heading that way this season!! But thats just me.
    Western Outdoor News just published a 395 or something, and the state record I think is maybe 405?

    Entire world record? Well if you count the Atlantic side, where that TV show Wicked Tuna is filmed, I think you'll find plenty above the 400 mark.
