The article reports that, when the long-range vessel, Red Rooster III, unloaded its final haul of yellowfin in June there were 19 fish that bested 200 pounds. The giant catch was a fitting end to the 2005-2006 season for the long-range fleet out of San Diego, California which saw anglers bring in 2,343 yellowfin weighing 200 pounds or more, including 12 that topped 300 pounds. The 200-plus-pound-yellowfin catch broke the total record of 457 fish in 2005.
