An Evening Post pic taken on 16 February 1990 showing members of the Waikanae Game Fishing Club, Kevin Foothead (left) and Mike Bramley, holding a 27.5 kg yellow-fin tuna, one of 16 they caught during the 1990 Penn International Yellow-fin Tuna Tournament in Whakatane. However, the original caption stated that this wasn’t the biggest, which was 62 kg.

So can fish like this be caught off the coast at Waikanae? We’ve no idea — a reader may know.
