In 1975, my father, Hank Dionne, caught a 700 lb yellowfin off Providence Cape Cod. He caught it with a rod and reel after an eight hour fight. The fish was weighed that day, breaking the scale from it's apparatus. There are two men still living who were on the boat that day. There are numerous photos of the fish and I believe the story was covered by the small local paper, the Falmouth Enterprise. To whom to I need to send these additional details? I am his daughter and witnessed the weighing and the saw the fish myself. Thank you very much.
