One That Didn't Get Away

The world record yellowfin tuna of 405 pounds, caught by Mike Livingston of Sunland last December aboard the Vagabond with skipper Mike Lackey, has found a home. It's hanging on the wall of the tackle store at Fisherman's Landing.

That was just about the only place on the docks that had room for such a large mount. It may be displayed there for many years, judging by the span the last all-tackle record survived. Curt Wiesenhutter's 388-pounder was caught in April 1977, and remained unbeaten under IGFA rules until Livingston brought his fish in.
