Marmin's Cubera Snapper

  • Pamela Marmin may have set the new women's 6-pound line class world record for cubera snapper with this 9-pound, 12-ounce fish caught on Aug. 25, 2018, while fishing out of Stuart, Fla. Marmin needed only 10 minutes to land the hard-fighting snapper after it ate the dead mullet she was using for bait. If approved, the catch will replace the current world record which stands at 3 pounds, 1 ounce.

  • IGFA representative Nathaniel Linville potentially set the new men's 2-pound tippet class world record for permit with this 16-pound fish caught and released on Aug. 29, 2018, while fishing off Key West with local guide John O'Hearn. The current world record of 9 pounds, 12 ounces was set more than 30 years ago by renowned fly angler Del Brown while fishing with IGFA Fishing Hall of Fame Member Capt. Steve Huff.

  • South African angler Jonathan Booysen caught this potential world record meagre on Aug. 14, 2018, while fishing off Richards Bay, South Africa. Booysen needed 15 minutes to land the 80-pound, 14-ounce fish after it ate the live bait he was fishing on the bottom. If approved, the catch will become the new men's 20-pound line class world record, which currently stands at 49 pounds, 13 ounces.

  • Japanese angler Yukiyo Okuyama caught and released this 15-pound, 14-ounce common carp on July 30, 2018, while fly-fishing Japan's Lake Shoji. Using ultra-light class tippet and a custom bread-patterned fly, Okuyama successfully landed the carp after a 25-minute fight. Once landed, the fish was quickly documented, weighed and released alive. If approved, the catch will qualify Okuyama for the new women's 2-pound tippet class world record, which currently stands at 7-pounds, 8-ounces.
