Winter usually finds giant bluefin tuna off Morehead City, North Carolina, but this year the bulk of the school was slightly off...by about 100 miles. Droves of fish arrived off Ocean Isle, near the South Carolina border, and Captain Brant McMullan went on the chase. He boated these two 500-pounders, but rumors of fish topping 800 pounds spread quickly.
