Fish Report for 4-22-2011
One That Didn't Get Away
The world record yellowfin tuna of 405 pounds, caught by Mike Livingston of Sunland last December aboard the Vagabond with skipper Mike Lackey, has found a home. It's hanging on the wall of the tackle store at Fisherman's Landing.
That was just about the only place on the docks that had room for such a large mount. It may be displayed there for many years, judging by the span the last all-tackle record survived. Curt Wiesenhutter's 388-pounder was caught in April 1977, and remained unbeaten under IGFA rules until Livingston brought his fish in.
