HEY, METROSEXUALS: A 12yr. Old Chick Lands Junior World Record Bluefin Tuna

Good Lawd! Most sassy metrosexual hipster dudes in Miami couldn’t catch a grunt, much less that mega-tuna. 1000 pts for Jenna and her folks who took her out of the mall and into the great outdoors. Enjoy.

Few parents were as proud as John and Chandra Gavin when their daughter caught a 618-pound beast of a bluefin tuna earlier this month. Although 12-year-old Jenna Gavin grew up around fishing—her parents own Giant Bluefin Tuna Charters in Nova Scotia—she had never landed a fish that big before.

“I was so amazed at how big it looked and that a twelve year old girl could reel in that big a fish!” Jenna wrote to OutdoorHub in an email.

It was big enough to challenge the current junior female world record, which belongs to a 431-pound tuna caught by Andrea George in Sausset, France in 2002. To Jenna’s parents, however, that catch was small-fry.

“Our fish here average 700 to 800 pounds,” Chandra Gavin stated. “If we had a junior angler that we felt was capable of the strength and stamina needed to complete the fight by the standards set by the International Game Fish Association (IGFA), then we knew we could almost guarantee breaking the record because of the size of the fish here.”
