World Record Tuna?

On Monday, longtime sportboat angler, Mike Livingston, a recently retired school superintendent from Sunland, CA landed the fish of a lifetime and may have hooked a new IGFA world record yellowfin tuna (aka ahi tuna to you sushi lovers).  At the current market rate of @ $20/lb, that’s an $8000 fish!  The whopper tuna was taken aboard a ten day trip on the Vagabond, captained by Mike Lackey, and part of the Point Loma fleet out of San Diego.  Congrats to everyone involved with landing this monster fish. Check out the video!
