Record Yellowfin Tuna off Cape Point – by

World Record Yellowfin


From Scenic South…

“Frank Scholtz who boated a probable world record yellowfin tuna of 106.75kg during the SADSAA Tuna Nationals fishing tournament hosted from Simons Town in May 2012 is probably still celebrating his remarkable catch…”


The catch was made back in 2012, but with the yellowfin running in the Cape right now, it makes for some serious inspiration. Another world record worthy of mention in the Cape, was by Louis Posthumous, who, whilst fishing for Natal a good 20 years ago, took 5 hours to land the world record Bigeye Tuna. On 4 kg line. The fish weighed 50.0kg’s!

Both of these fish qualify for the 10:1 accolade.
