Two species – the pinima peacock and the unusual butterfly kingfish – are being considered for first-time IGFA World Records in this month’s Hot Catches report.

Standing records for calico bass, roosterfish, white seabass and more are also being challenged as anglers from Australia, Brazil, Costa Rica, Finland, Japan, Mexico, and Alabama, California, and Wyoming in the United States weigh in with more world-class catches.
