The IGFA has released a new batch of potential all-tackle (length) world record catches. It should be noted that these catches are currently under review, and as of yet can?t be officially declared world records.

Pink salmon

Bo Nelson has not one, but two fish under review ? August and September were busy months for the B.C. angler. On Aug. 20, while fly fishing in Fernie, he landed a bull trout that measured 81 cm. And on Sept. 18, while fly fishing in Chilliwack, he caught a pink salmon that measured in at 65 cm.

Northern pike
IGFA

Every angler knows that landing a northern pike is no easy feat, which makes the behemoth caught by Mark ?Doc? Hatton all the more impressive. While fishing on the Taltson River in the Northwest Territories on Sept. 26, Hatton caught a monster that measured 118 cm.

Gulf coney
IGFA

The gulf coney may not be the most well-known species, but that shouldn?t take away from the impressiveness of George Bogen?s potential record. While drifting in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico, on Oct. 22, Bogen landed a coney that tipped the scales at 24 lbs, 11 oz. It also measured in at 88.9 cm.

Striped bass
IGFA

Finally, the record for striped bass may have been broken by Maureen Klause. On Nov. 9, while bottom fishing in New Jersey?s Delaware Bay, she landed a striper that measured a very impressive 98 cm.
