WORLD RECORDS: hot catches March 2018




IGFA Representative Steve Wozniak caught this gorgeous swallowtail (Meganthias natalensis) while deep dropping off Watamu, Kenya on January 25, 2018. Weighing in at 3.4-kilograms (7-pounds 8-ounce), the rare catch could earn Wozniak the new All-Tackle World Record if approved. The current IGFA World Record for this species is vacant as this is the first-ever submission received for this species.




Malaysian angler Faizal Zainal potentially broke the All-Tackle World Record for giant snakehead (Channa micropeltes) with this massive 13.6-kilogram (30-pound) fish that he caught-and-released on February 28, 2018 while fishing outside of Rawang, Malaysia. Zainial needed only a few minutes to subdue the snakehead after it crushed the lure he was casting. If approved, the catch will replace the existing All-Tackle World Record of 11.79-kilogram (26-pound).




South African angler Vincent Sakko - age 13 - potentially set the new Male Junior World Record for African red snapper (Lutjanus agennes) with this impressive 11.7-kilogram (25-pound 12-ounce) fish that he caught on December 30, 2017 while fishing Barra do Cuanz, Angola. Sakko needed approximately 10 minutes to subdue the hard-fighting snapper after it ate the live mullet he was using for bait. If approved, the catch will replace the existing record of 9.2 kg (20 lb 4 oz)

WORLDS RECORDS: hot catches February 2018



Russian angler Ilya Sherbovich potentially set the new All-Tackle world record for snubnose pompano (Trachinotis blocheii) with this gorgeous 5.98 kg (13 lb 3 oz) specimen that he caught while fly-fishing the flats of the Seychelles on February 9. Fishing with guide Kyle Simpson, Sherbovich coerced a bite from the notoriously stubborn pompano with a well-placed cast and custom crab-patterned fly. The fish was landed after a 12 minute fight, and was quickly weighed, documented, and released alive. The current All-Tackle world record is 5.08 kg (11 lb 3 oz).



Junior angler Rex Clarke - age 12 - recently caught this 29.85 kg (65 lb 12 oz) great barracuda (Sphyraena barracuda) while trolling a dead mackerel off the coast of Kilifi, Kenya on February 12. Using only 6 kg (12 lb) line, Clarke skillfully played the fish for approximately 30 minutes before it was landed. If approved, the catch will earn Clarke the new Male Junior world record and the men's 6 kg (12 lb) line class world record, which stand at 23.4 kg (51 lb 9 oz) and 29.03 kg (63 lb 15 oz), respectively.



American angler Meredith McCord potentially set the new women’s 4 kg (8 lb) tippet class world record for rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) with this beautiful 4.93 kg (10 lb 14 oz) fish that she caught and released on January 25 while fly-fishing Strobel Lake, Argentina. McCord needed only three minutes to subdue the trout after it ate the nymph she was casting. If approved, the catch will replace the existing world record of 2.55 kg (5 lb 9 oz).




Japanese angler Mari Kitagawa caught, tagged, and released this 2.22 kg (4 lb 15 oz) blackfin seabass (Lateolabrax latus) on December 30 while fly-fishing Urado Bay, Japan. Kitagawa needed less than a minute to subdue the fish after it ate the streamer patterned fly she was casting. If approved, the catch will earn Kitagawa the new women’s 3 kg (6 lb) tippet class world record, which currently stands at 1.3 kg (2 lb 13 oz).
