It’s been a busy month for record-seeking anglers! Almost 50 World Record applications were received at IGFA headquarters in May, and of those, these nine saltwater and four fresh water records – and an application for the new 50-pound Dolphinfish Trophy Club – stand out from the crowd.

Check out the highlights from anglers catching southern bluefin tuna, great barracuda, tarpon, musky and more in Angola, Australia, Brazil, Christmas Island, Norway, Mexico, and Florida, New Jersey, Massachusetts and Michigan in the June edition of the IGFA Hot Catches.
