800 lb tuna



So this past weekend I took by brother Eric out Deep sea fishing for his bachelor party. This is one of the three fish caught on the trip. This is a yellow fin tuna and is also the biggest catch of the year. This fish came in at 105 inches and about 800 lbs. It took two guys two hours to reel him in and then another 8 to get it on the boat. Sadly to say we didn't get to keep the fish because of mass state laws, this fish is going to be auctioned off and sent to Japan, the captain of the boat believes it will fetch around 10-12 thousand dollars, we also won't be sharing in any of the profits.
ill try to get bigger pictures posted in the future....

yeah i dont get the reason why you dont get anything or cant keep it? If i knew that as they were reeling it in i'd snap a photo and cut the line! Screw that.
