Biggest tuna boil you’ll ever see (fishing video)

When fishermen talk about a tuna boil, they are referring to the bubbling whitewater that results from a fish swirling on a bait at the surface.

The action gives the impression of a boiling pot.

In case you still can’t grasp the concept, Propiedad de Paradise resort in the Gulf of Chiriqui, Panama, videotaped the perfect example of boiling yellowfin tuna in an incredible feeding frenzy.

Cast your eyes on the biggest tuna boil you’ll probably ever see:





Now do you get the tuna boil concept?

This incredible feeding frenzy of yellowfin tuna feasting on a baitball occurred last month. Propiedad de Paradish Lodge fills in the details via its YouTube post:
Propiedad de Paradise Lodge's clients experience another huge Yellowfin Tuna frenzy! aboard the TOP Cat here in the Gulf of Chiriqui, Panama!

On May 11, 2012 while fishing 25 miles from the lodge here on Isla Paridas we came across a massive boil of Yellowfin Tunas, Porpoises, and birds [decimating] a bait ball of Blue Runners and Goggle Eyes. Hundreds of 50 to 100 pound Yellowfin Tunas jumping and feeding until the baitball is gone.
It’s certainly a nice advertisement for the resort, but don’t expect this to be an everyday occurrence. You’re more likely to hear something like, “You should’ve been here yesterday.”

Angler catches world-record yellowfin tuna

While the monster yellowfin tuna was being cranked up on the scale, a couple of people in the crowd of nearly 200 started rooting the fish on: “Four, four, break four!”

As in 400 pounds.

Well, it broke “four.” It broke a world record, too.

The fish weighed 405.2 pounds and will put Mike Livingston of Sunland, Calif., into the International Game Fish Assn. world-record book. That is, if it is approved, and it probably will be. The current record is 388 pounds, 12 ounces by Curt Wiesenhutter in April 1977.

Livingston caught the fish last week aboard the long-range fishing vessel Vagabond out of Point Loma (Calif.) Sportfishing. It was weighed Monday morning upon the boat’s return from the 10-day trip.

See the entire story and video of the weigh-in at GrindTV Outdoor. It’s worth a look.

So how long do you suppose it took Livingston to catch this huge yellowfin tuna?

According to GrindTV, nearly three hours, or about as long as it would take to watch a Major League Baseball game. Think about that!
