Anglers hope to get in 2013 IGFA World Record Game Fishes book

The end of the year is just around the corner, and world record-seeking anglers have their eye on the 2013 IGFA World Record Game Fishes book. 


Some of the record hopefuls who have submitted applications to the IGFA this month may see their name in the next edition of the annual publication, but because the cut-off date for the annual world record cycle is August 15 for catches made in the United States and July 15for catches made internationally, many will be hoping their potential records, if approved, will stand until the 2014 book.

Whether or not every fish in this month’s IGFA Hot Catches report – from as far afield as Australia, Canada, Ghana, Panama, Papua New Guinea and Alaska, Florida, and New Jersey – makes it into the IGFA World Record Game Fishes book, these anglers still have something to brag about.

Check out these catches!
