115 Pound Teenager Catches a Monster, 835 Pound Blue-fin Tuna In Louisiana
Fishing is so much fun. Sure, it can be frustrating, expensive, and time-consuming - but fun. I'm not sure I am ready to start feeding my family with my angling skills, but I enjoy the solace and peace.
Other folks, however, are obviously in it to win it. Take 14 year old Kaleb Richardson, for example. This 114 pound 8th grader landed a Bluefin Tuna large enough to feed a small army. Kaleb and his dad, Keith Richardson, were enjoying a fishing expedition in the Gulf of Mexico when he hit the payfish (a term I invented that combines paydirt and fish).
What you are looking at is a 835 pound Bluefin tuna. One of the most amazing parts of this story is that he caught, reeled in, and landed this behemoth on 100 pound test line. That's some awesome line! Even crazier, this is not the state record. That belongs to a 1,152-pounds that was caught in 2003.
