Two young Tasmanian boys may have broken two world records for the biggest southern bluefin tuna.

Sam Nichols, 12, is hoping to break the junior world record with his 112-kilogram catch, which he made on a 24-kilogram line. The current junior record stands at 90 kg.

Toby Nichols, 10, could break the "small fry" (under-11) world record with his 119-kilogram fish caught on a 37-kilogram line. The current small-fry record stands at 40 kg.

The boys were fishing with their dad near Hippolyte Rocks off the Tasman Peninsula on Wednesday.
