    I have a son that wants to be a Marine Biologist also but he hasn't caught anything like that yet.
    Thanks for sharing this info.

    Whata catch I would have loved to see the exact expression on his face when he saw its size.

    Good luck on your trip! Catch a biggun!

    Saw on MSN this evening where they caught a 355 lb tuna off of the California coast, too.

    Take care.

    He was on one of the "Late talk shows"(Carson Daley) <---spelling? any way, last night saying they were not going to honor it as a record? I agree on a great story, have looked around but not seen anything new, wasn't a very good interview, any one see it?
