About all you can say about this one is…Holy Crap! On July 16, an angler visiting BC from England landed one of the largest freshwater fish ever taken on rod and reel: a 12-foot, 4-inch long (53″ girth!!) white sturgeon estimated to way in excess of 1,100 pounds!
The massive beast was hooked in the Fraser River took 1.5 hours to subdue. Read the entire story here: Great River Fishing
Globetrotting angler Patrick Sebile (of Sebile lures) landed this largemouth bass on Lake Okeechobee while fishing with guide Jeff Brooks.
The big bucketmouth sucked down a Sebile Proppler Buzz and measured out to 61 cm (24+ inches), which qualifies Sebile for a potential new All-Tackle Length record. The existing record stands at 59 cm. The bass was released after the photo.
The IGFA has a relatively new class of world records for anglers to shoot at: Catch & Release length records for many species.
When Andrew Fairclouth hooked, played and released the first steelhead of his life, a nice 12 pounder, there’s no way he could have known that a dozen casts later he’d make fly fishing history. But that’s exactly what happened on a spring day just a few seasons ago in northwestern British Columbia.Click here to read more…
