Almost world record tuna off race point

PROVINCETOWN - Part-time Yarmouth resident Dave Lamoureux, 42, a Wall Street trader from Chicago, caught a 157-pound tuna early this morning from his kayak off Race Point Beach in Provincetown.

Unfortunately for Lamoureux, the record for a tuna caught from a kayak is 187 pounds.

Lamoureux has been trying since August to beat world records set for tuna-fishing from a kayak. His tuna was weighed this afternoon at Goose Hummock in Orleans.

Lamoureux said he caught the tuna using his family's 12-foot kayak, after being out on the water at the "crack of dawn." He pulled it to the shore in the Cape Cod National Seashore. A boater came along and then helped him tow it to Fisherman's Wharf.

Since August he has caught a 60-pound tuna and an 80-pound one, and lost more than a dozen others. Lamoureux said he is pursuing the world record for the "adrenaline rush."

That seems pretty do-able...all the pieces just have to fall into place but if he sticks with it I am sure he could beat a 180. Mush be a bich getting that thing aboard a yak though.

Yes, as long as the kayak is registered.
