So how big was it?
Watching the attached YouTube video will tell you more than words about this giant yellowfin tuna caught off Baja, California, and Phil Friedman Outdoors has the full story. He reported the weight as 445 pounds, and writes:
"Art Soriano drove all the way from Los Angeles with his three children to watch the weigh-in.
“'How often do you get to see history being made?'” he remarked to Friedman. “'What an awesome day.'”
Other bloggers such as Pete Thomas report that local anglers and charter boat captains have been buzzing about it ever since that Dec. 3 weigh-in, which drew a crowd that chanted and cheered. But an updated weight, based on a 'tape' measure, puts the fish even heavier: 449 pounds.
