The 2012 year was a great one for yellowfin tuna anglers. In September, a potential world-record yellowfin tuna was caught off Cabo. The fish could also be worth $1,000,000 as part of a contest. Then in December, angler John Petruescu trumped that by landing a 445-pound yellowfin tuna, making it the largest recorded yellowfin tuna ever caught on rod and reel. Unfortunately, Petruescu's record tuna was not able to be submitted to IGFA.
