It was the first tuna ever caught from that pier. Tuna are a highly migratory species and tend to stay offshore. The one exception for NC are bluefin tuna. These fish move very close to shore in Dec,Jan, Feb.I've seen schools of 4-600lb bluefins in 20 feet of water.
More amazing than this blackfin tuna landing is the ignorance and hatred towards a certain sector of the fishing community by a very small band of ardent anglers.
