The fish was caught on 50-pound line, but is by far the largest CA yellowtail ever caught by a female angler in ANY line class.
However, the rail was used, and a deckhand handled the rod for about 15 seconds, so IGFA will not accept it for record consideration.
Regardless, major congratulations are in order.

She also took 2nd Jp with a nice YFT, this is beyond kudos, what a fish!!!! Props, big league accomplishment!!! (record or not, she's a hero in my book) I'm sure the 15 seconds were the deckie asking to feel WTF was on the other end.....must have been an absolute brute. Epic.

    That YT is uuuuuuuuuge! Must have pulled like a mule but a lot faster. Congrats to the Lady Angler who caught it. Fish of lifetime. I'd call it Toadasaurus!

    The fact that there is no nickname for a yellowtail that size tells you just how rare it is and what a feat it was to catch it!

    Congratulations to the angler. :daman:

    Sold my Parker. You can find me on the Red Rooster.
    Only a little off topic: My biggest YT was something like 30#, maybe 35#. I was told that big YT just don't taste very good and that for the table it's best to keep those under about 20#. Can anyone verify this notion? Thanks.
