    i know most have seen this but i just thought i would post it up.

    here is a short explanation from Albemarle Boats.

    Albemarle Boats would like to congratulate Dennis Meinhart, owner of the 410 Convertible Sea Wolf, for an outstanding catch on Sunday, December 17, 2006. After a four and a half hour fight, Meinhart and crew boated an 875 lb Blue Fin Tuna. Caught out of Beaufort Inlet, the fish is a pending North Carolina State record, smashing the previous record by more than one hundred pounds.

    They fought the fish too long (4 1/2 hours). They probably got $7-8 per pound. The average price of bluefin tuna caught in NC now is about $10 - 13 per pound.
