April 22, 2018 | 6 Comments

[Updated with video] Crowds gathered at Robinson’s Marina in Somerset this afternoon [April 22] to get a glimpse at the latest catch of a bluefin tuna.

Captain Bobby Lambe hooked the 431.1lb tuna at around 7.30am this morning on the fishing boat ‘Last Chance’ and it took until 2.30pm this afternoon before it was finally landed on the boat and brought to shore.

The bluefin tuna was caught with an 80lb test line and 8/0 southern tuna hook. There is a gouge on the side of the fish which was believed to be inflicted by a large squid.

    An IUCN redlist endsngered species. If they were as common now as they once were, this would not be news.

      and one fish that was already marked as squid fare won’t make a difference -WE in Bermuda cannot be attributed to the decline in the Bluefin population

    Sad. Shame. This red list endangered fish fought you for his life for 7 hours yet you proudly dangle him upside down for public display.
    I guess if this is what you need to do to make a living, but I wouldn’t be quite as boasty about it.

  4. Clarity says:

    Well, that is just looters logic.

    Best wishes
