A new state record Bluefin Tuna was caught yesterday out of Rudee Inlet in Virginia by the crew of the Bella Donna with Mate Robert Smith.

The big Bluefin was 103″ in length and tipped the scale out at 578 pounds!

Congratulations to the crew of the Bella Donna!

Big thanks to Jake Hiles on the report!

We expect Bluefins and Yellowfins to be off of Ocean City in June.  Check out our charter boats in Heading Offshore!
