Not only has this kid caught one world record, he went for the repeat.

You might remember this story from a few months back. 10-year-old Keon Norton caught a Smallfry IGFA world record tuna weighing in at 486 pounds. Considering the current record for a bluefin tuna in this category was under 50 pounds, he crushed that record fairly easily.

Well, Norton is at it again. This time, the 10-year-old caught a tuna almost double the size of his last one. This definite Smallfry new world record tuna tipped the scales at an incredible 847.7 pounds!

“When I saw it come out of the water I thought I had a record that was never going to be broken,” Norton said.

“He was pulling and dragging me around, but I handled him,” Norton exclaimed. “He was pretty big.”

This giant fish came near Prince Edward Island, with a little help from the guidance of Keon’s father, Greg, who happens to be a tuna charter boat captain.
