Those who spend their days on boats with a fishing rod in hand dream of landing the catch of the day, just like 14-year old Kaleb Richardson of Pensacola recently did. Richardson managed to reel in a massive 835-pound bluefin tuna with the help of the crew.
Richardson measures in at five feet, six inches, and 115 pounds. Yet he landed a tuna more than seven times his size. That is nuts.
Clearly, when anyone on the fishing vessel on a fishing expedition manages to bring in a catch like this, it is worth celebrating. But first, it requires some serious teamwork to get the tuna on board.
This wasn’t the first big catch of the fishing expedition for this group. As reported by the Pensacola News Journal, the crew caught a 500-pound marlin earlier in the four-day trip. That fish was caught and released back into the water.
As for the caught tuna? That is a heck of a lot of tuna sandwiches and tuna salad to make. Maybe they can make a sushi chef or two happy as well.
And in related news, there was most certainly no naked Florida football coach onboard.
