April 2, 2015 just before closing we got a call about a huge Bluefin Tuna being brought in to our docks, rumor had it it could possibly break the state record. We hung it from our scales and it weighed in at 578 pounds, breaking the current state record. We notified the state board and they sent down a witness, the official pending state record weight was 576.5 pounds. A huge Congratulations to Robert Smith and crew!
