Los Cabos is Super Cow Country


Top 10 Tuna List in 2017 had 2 super cows of 305 and 372 pounds
added for a total of five yellowfin over 300 in 19 years

BY PAT McDONELL
Director, Cabo Tuna Jackpot


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

Will there be another onslaught of big tuna this November? It would appear the five fish over 300 in 19 years and dozens over 200 pounds would indicate all things are possible.

Without a doubt, the 2017 Cabo Tuna Jackpot tourney had some big fish catches, topped by the 338 pounder by two-time Jackpot winner Estrella Del Norte, the North Star team, and the 305 pounder that same first day by team Judy Judy, taking over two of the slots in the top 10 over 19 years.


THIRD BIGGEST IS NOW the 338 pounder by Estrella Del Norte in 2017, which owns two titles and two of the top 5 fish over 19 years.

Prior to this year, 2012 was the tourney that marked the finest overall cow tuna action in the history of the event, with 12 fish over 200 pounds, including the 371 pounder by the 2012/2017 champs on Estrella Del Norte. This year, the 11 fish over 200 and 2 over 300 pounds that counted in the standings, and two others in the high 200s and a 325 that came in just past the 6 p.m. deadline make it the best two-day event for big tuna in the history of the event over 19 years.
