Although an Atlantic halibut from Norway recently made headlines worldwide, the catch has not yet been received by the IGFA for world record consideration; however, a sizeable California halibut is now before the World Records committee for a potential 6 kg (12 lb) line class record. Read on for this catch, plus potential Pacific bluefin tuna, bluefish, and yellowmargin triggerfish world records from Baja, Christmas Island, and California and New Jersey in the United States – as well as a new Inshore Grand Slam with a tarpon, permit, and bonefish out of Cayo Cruz, Cuba!
