    Little birdie told me the Big E is bringing in the largest yellowfin and largest grouper ever landed on the boat. Could not get the weights so I'm guessing they're going to be some SLABS. Wish I was down there to watch the boat come in, or even better to have been on the trip.

    Hope the fish breaks 200 ...sounds like a awesome trip can't wait for pics/report
    I am waiting at the dock to see they weigh the fish.
    My estimate is 170 - 190 lbs, but I could be wrong. We have several fish over 100 lbs and broke off a few larger one on one long drift this morning at Nancen.

    the tuna is 154 lbs and the warsaw grouper is 234 lbs.
    when a crew said the yft is over 200 lbs, I said no way.
    He asked me whether I've seen any tuna over 200 lbs. Apprarently they didn't see 200 lbs tuna. :)

    josh landed it.

    the tuna was probably a bit heavier when caught, prob 170ish.

    kil - your big tuna was probably around 90-95lbs when caught.

    I ended up with 361lbs of fish to clean - and i gave a few away!

    Those are awesome fish and it's always neat when a boat sets a new standard.

    Too bad these new record fish will only stand for a couple of weeks .....:D
