Giant Bluefin Tuna Released
To an inexperience angler this may not look like much, but to an experienced angler this is like fishporn. We know (and dream) about these types of battles with a 1000 pound bluefin tuna. Even better after a long hard fought battle this guy RELEASES the fish. At a common price of $17 per pound a 1000 pound bluefin tuna can bring in $17,000 and up!!
With that said props to the angler and crew for letting this old fish live another day, it deserves it.
Now watch this guy put the wood to this monster bluefin
Watch as this huge baitball gets destroyed by bluefin tuna and dolphin. It’s also very interesting to see how the dolphin coral the bait by blowing stacks of air bubbles.
Since I’ve decided to start new with my site, I thought it would be best to go back to the beginning. The early days of tuna fishing. Back then the men were men and wore hard hats while fishing from the racks. They did’t have expensive rod and reels and comfortable bunks to sleep in. Here they fishing 24 hours a day and generally as a team.
I think these scenes are from a movie called “A Tribute To Tuna”. If not let me know so that I can give proper credit where it belongs.
