Dec. 2013 IGFA Hot Catches
Doug Borries of Ocean Springs, Miss., bested a 26-pound, 9-ounce red snapper.

Potential record caught; Italian completes Super Grand Slam

Freshwater anglers in Canada, Finland, the Netherlands, and New Mexico in the United States have reason to get out and fish this month (although we never really need much reason beyond water being nearby).

Potential new world records for Arctic char, brook trout, muskellunge, northern pike, and zander have recently been caught in these regions, and four of the five were released to be caught again another day!

In saltwater news, a trip to Ascension Bay, Mexico has produced an Inshore Super Grand Slam (catching a bonefish, tarpon, snook, and permit all in the same day) for an Italian angler – a feat that’s been accomplished less than 100 times in the IGFA’s record book.

New world records are also pending review for golden trevally, grey snapper, red drum, red snapper, and wahoo caught in Australia, Tonga, and in Louisiana, Florida, and the Gulf of Mexico off the coasts of the United States.
