One kayak fisherman’s achievement of catching a bluefin tuna weighing nearly 170 pounds is under investigation.  In a recent interview National Oceanic and Atmosphere Administration bluefin tuna expert Brad McHale told North American Kayak Fishing blogger Adam Bolonsky that although amazing the North Carolina fisherman did not abide by the NOAA mandated regulations.

bluefinRegulations state that the recreational daily bluefin tuna limit is one bluefin tuna per boat/day/trip.  When the kayak anglers handed the fish over to their mother ship to be gaffed they broke the one fish limit, further more neither kayak angler had a NOAA bluefin tuna permit.

Listen to audio of Bolonsky's interview at the North American Kayak Fishing Blog.
