Malibu woman catches tuna with her bare hands

diana-armstrong-tuna.jpgThe Malibu Times says that Diana Armstrong was on her deck facing the beach on Saturday night when she noticed birds diving close to the surf. Larger fish were chasing smaller fish almost onto the sand.

From the MT:

"Diana heard a fish flapping on the beach so she went down to the water and dragged the fish up the beach, trying not to lose it to the waves. She was able to bring the fish far enough up the beach that Alan Armstrong was able to help her get it inside to be cleaned up and shared among friends."

It was a 37-pound bluefin tuna.
