Default Re: saltwater kayak angler thread

Cape cod fisherman Dave Lamoureux with his 157 lb Bluefin tuna
Quote:
Dave broke his own Bluefin record three consecutive times, catching tuna that weighed: 60lbs, 80lbs, and 157lbs. His last catch earned him the world record for the largest Tuna (of any species) ever caught unassisted from a kayak.

Lamoureux is believed to be one of the first to experience a true "Nantucket Sleigh Ride" in a kayak by riding the giant Bluefin Tuna at speeds up to 10-15 mph.
