Sorry, didn't mean to distract from your post or from the the accomplishment of the angler. I only meant to answer the question on where to find in-shore tuna.
Many people chase them around here. The market value is astounding. A good season will buy a new boat and that's what many of the less scrupulous "guides" are shooting for.
Bluefin are often found with-in sight of land and sometimes, but not often, they'll even be seen chasing bait right in the surf. However it's not legal to take them from shore, you must have a permit (all of $10, last I looked ) and permits are only issued to motorized vessels.
