The month's top catches for world record consideration

Standing records for swordfish, whiterock bass, largemouth bass, Atlantic halibut and more are being challenged in this month’s edition of the IGFA Hot Catches. 

The IGFA maintains world records for both freshwater and saltwater game fishes in line class, tippet class and all-tackle categories. With a move toward catch and release, it recently added length records so anglers can document their fish then let it swim away.

This month’s selection of the latest potential records, from Australia, the Clipperton Atoll, Germany, New Zealand, Norway, South Africa, and Florida and Nebraska in the United States, is on its way to the IGFA Record Committee to see if they set a new bar for anglers around the world.
