WORLD RECORDS: hot catches December 2014

 

The remote Christmas Island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean is one of the few places in the world where anglers can target triggerfish on flats. Singaporean angler Pang Kim Lock took advantage of this opportunity, and set the potential new All-Tackle record for yellowmargin triggerfish (Pseudobalistes flavimarginatus) with a 5.61 kg (12 lb 6 oz) fish he caught on November 5th. Lock needed 21 minutes to land the stubborn fish, which he released alive after it was properly documented. The current record is 2.75 kg (6 lb 1 oz).


For nearly 40 years, the women’s 24 kg (50 lb) line class record for black marlin (Istiompax indica) has belonged to Kay Mulholland and the 396.44 kg (874 lb) fish she caught on October 16, 1976. However, on October 30th, American angler Stephanie Osgood Choate potentially broke the longstanding record with a massive 504 kg (1111 lb 1 oz) black she caught aboard the Top Shot, captained by Ross Finlayson. Choate, an experienced angler, needed two hours to subdue the fish after it inhaled the scaley mackerel they were trolling just off Ribbon Reef #10 – a section of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.


While trolling a diving plug from his kayak in Australia’s famed Lake Tinaroo, angler Peter Hart hooked into a bruiser of a barramundi (Lates calcarifer) that could potentially earn him the new men’s 8 kg (16 lb) line class world record. Hart needed approximately 10 minutes to land the 33.7 kg (74 lb 4 oz) barra, which bests the current record by nearly 4.5 kg (10 lb).

Fishing with Team Pelagic's Eric "OZ" Ozolins on a strategic shark-tagging mission, angler Scott Nelson fought the massive 13' 3" shark throughout the entirety of the night, all on foot from the sand.

The giant shark seems to be one of the largest sharks ever landed from shore on the Texas coast.

Oz works closely with local university and research institutes to provide valuable biological studies on these amazing creatures, releasing 99% of all healthy, surf-caught sharks after measurement and documentation.
