TBF is glad to report a recapture for a bluefin tuna that was fortunate enough to be released by a Spanish longline vessel. This bluefin was tagged in August of 2014 by Eric Forg with Capt. Bruce Troy of Bruce Bros. Charters and released at an estimated 650 lbs. The bluefin went on to be at large for 192 days and travel more than 2,000 miles to where it was recaptured roughly 200 miles southwest of the Azores. Captain Miguel Rodriguez of the "Madre Josefa Uno" measured the tuna at just under 100" before releasing it good condition. Congratulations and thanks to everyone involved for reporting this great recapture.
