Last week, Siesta Key residents Chris and Laura Jessen were part of an exclusive group of travelers on the Australia-based Blue Water Magazine readers trip of 2012: the hunt for giant bluefin tuna. The couple spent six days aboard the Lady Dawn, in Prince Edward Island, Canada, fishing for giant bluefin with Captains Jamie and Troy Bruce. Regulations for giant bluefin tuna fishing are strictly enforced for preservation, and each charter boat can catch and release only one fish in the morning and one in the afternoon each day.
