UPDATE: Details are coming in, and like most "big stories" it's tough to pull the real info out of the online muck.
But this is what we do know: The angler was said to be Guy Yocom of Dana Point; the vessel, El Suertudo, a 61-foot Viking. There's been rumors galore, so far what we do know from calls to WON is that it's been said that the goal of Yocom has been to win the $1,000,000 in Mustad's Hook a Million Contest.
Word (unconfirmed) is that the boat has permits to fish the Revillagigedos, and that's where the fish was caught. It's hurricane season, and fishing the islands is a dicey move... it will be interesting to see what the whole story is. Stay tuned. No confirmed word if it was 421.5 or 427...
Just got an e mail that what could be a new IGFA all-tackle yellowfin tuna just got weighed in down in Cabo.
There are no details at this time, except for that the fish weighed 421.5 or 427 pounds.
Look for an update later. If anyone has any details, please share! In the meantime, here's the fish:
