The North Carolina Division of Marine Fisheries announced Monday April 9, 2018 that the 877 lb Bluefin Tuna reeled in by Delaware resident Scott Chambers on March 17, 2018 is officially the new North Carolina State Record. The recored Bluefin shattered the old record by 72 lbs and will no doubt stand for quite some time since the previous record Bluefin was caught in 2011. This fish was caught in the same general area off Oregon Inlet. Chambers fought the Bluefin for two and half hours... Congratulations to Scott and the crew for this remarkable catch.
