Million Dollar World Record “Yellowfin Tuna”

The International Game Fish Association confirmed the 427-pound Yellowfin tuna caught on September 28th by Guy Yocom as the new world record for the species. This came on the heels of a 445-pound yellowfin caught on the F/V Excel. The 445-pounder was not submitted for a world record, which was good news for Guy Yocom as he now stands to win $1 million from Mustad for catching his world-record Yellowfin on a Mustad hook.
