What does it take to win the Cabo Tuna Jackpot? Each year is different but 200 pounders are common at the weigh-in and a 300 pounder is likely to be the winning fish. However, it did not work out like that in 2020 with a 210 pounder by Ole Ole taking the title.

What will 2021’s event bring? At one time a 300 pounder at the tourney was unbelievable, and it took 7 years for Team Ni Modo to do it, and three years later the Fisher Man accomplished the feat to set the tourney standard of 383 pounds which still stands.

Since then, there have been five more super cows. The 200 pounders are now fairly common. In 2019 ten 10 fish over 200 pounds this year topped by Team Sirena’s 345 pounder, third biggest ever, were brought to the scales; The Sirena yellowfin in 2019 was the sixth 300 pounder in the event’s history; Santana’s 291 pounder in 2019 was also added to top 10 best-ever catches. None from 2020 made it onto the list.

Nov. 3-6, 2021 is another chance at making the Tuna Hall of Fame.

THE BIGGEST tuna in the event's history remains the Fisher Man's 383 pounder, caught in 2009.
