Giant ahi tuna capsizes Hawaii angler’s boat
Anthony Wichman of Kauai, Hawaii was momentarily dragged under when the 230-pound ahi tuna he’d just hooked capsized his boat. The US Coast Guard answered a distress call from Wichman’s wife, and arrived at the scene to find Wichman perched on the hull of his vessel – with the ahi still hooked on his line.
No word on whether the tuna was released after it was weighed.
The current world record for ahi (yellowfin) tuna is 427 pounds, caught in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, in September 2012.
