  • Wahoo – TT$10,000 (currently 103.4 lbs., caught by Carl Leung)*

*Current Trinidad and Tobago All Tackle Records

Note: IGFA rule on record replacement for fish over 25lbs (11.33kg). To replace a record fish weighing 25 pounds (11.33 kg) or more, the replacement must weigh at least one half of 1 percent more than the existing record. At 100 pounds (45.35 kg) the additional weight required would be 8 ounces (226.7 gm); at 200 pounds (90.71 kg) the additional weight required would be 1 pound (.453 kg); and so on.

A catch which matches the weight of an existing record or exceeds the weight by less than the amount required to defeat the record will be considered a tie. In case of a tie claim involving more than two catches, weight must be compared with the original record (first fish to be caught). Nothing weighing less than the original record will be considered.

Should more than one fish in any species break the existing record, the largest fish at the end of the tournament will be declared the winner. Should there be a “tie” the record prize would go to the angler on a “first-to-boat-the-fish” basis at the time reported to Tournament Control.
