A Bluefin tuna estimated at over 300lb has been caught off the coast of Wales.
The mighty fish was landed by Kent angler Andy Griffith aboard ‘White Water II’ skippered by Andrew Allsop out of Milford Haven. It took a deep diving home-made lure and took an hour to bring to the boat. The fish was released.
Andy had reportedly been targeting a bluefin since hooking one while shark fishing in 2013. That fish stripped his reel and broke free.
Andy is no stranger to big fish though. He holds four Welsh records following a magical day in 2013 when he boated a 235lb porbeagle shark, a 194lb shortfin mako and a 167lb blue shark.
