An angler fishing off the Baja California city of Loreto has landed a 430-pound yellowfin tuna that might have become a world record if he had followed proper procedure.

Robert Ross caught the massive fish on a trip out of the remote Pisces Collection Lodge, on the Sea of Cortez near Loreto. The lodge is not yet open and does not have a certified scale, or cold storage.

Ross told Pisces Sportfishing general manager Tracy Ehrenberg that he had little choice but to fillet the tuna after weighing it on a butcher's scale at a nearby ranch.

“Once they told me the weight I told them, 'You just cut up your world record,' ” Ehrenberg, whose business is in Cabo San Lucas, said via email.

The International Game Fish Assn. lists as the all-tackle world record a 427-pound yellowfin tuna caught off Cabo San Lucas in 2012.
