Mexican angler Jorge Lazo potentially set the new men’s 24 kg (50 lb) line class world record for yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares) with this massive 192.59 kg (424 lb 9 oz) fish the he caught on January 8th while fishing out of Loreto, Mexico. Lazo was using a live mackerel for bait when the huge tuna hit, taking Lazo nearly two hours to land on the stand-up gear he was using. If approved, the catch will be the second heaviest yellowfin ever recorded by the IGFA, and would easily replace the existing record of 175 kg (385 lb 12 oz).
Brazilian angler Mariozan Gomes Do Nascimento possibly set the new All-Tackle world record for vazzoleri peacock (Cichla vazzoleri) with this beautiful 7.71 kg (17 lb) fish that he caught and released on September 26th while fishing the Rio Paratucu in Brazil. The potential record peacock hit a topwater plug that Nascimento was casting, and put up a tough five minute fight. If approved, the catch will replace the existing world record of 5.9 kg (13 lb).

Anglers caught two absolute monster drums, the bigger one unofficially smashing the current world-record mark at an estimated 122 pounds.
Adam Kirby was fishing near Georgetown and had had a pretty good day;
on his first cast, Kirby hooked and landed a black drum the men estimated to be around 110 pounds.
They decided to keep fishing, and around 40 minutes later, Bremner became the star as he hooked into an even bigger drum. Using the same formula, they estimated this fish to be around 122 pounds, which would’ve effectively made it the new world record, beating the standing record of 113 pounds by 9 pounds.
South Carolina forbids anglers from keeping fish outside of 14-27 inches, even to be officially weighed.
