WORLD RECORDS: hot catches of January 2016

German angler Johann Kaaserer caught this enormous 149.65 kg (329 lb 15 oz ) Atlantic halibut (Hippoglossus hippoglossus) on August 15th while fishing off Mefjord, Norwary. Kaaserer needed only 45 minutes to subdue the massive halibut after it ate the jig he was fishing on relatively light spinning tackle! If approved, the catch will earn Kaaserer the new men's 15 kg (30 lb) line class record, and will be the third heaviest Atlantic halibut ever recorded by the IGFA.

Brazilian angler Ednaldo Camacho Lazarin caught and released what could become the new All-Tackle Length world record for speckled peacock (Cichla temensis) on October 10th, while fishing near Santa Isabel in the Brazilian Amazon. Lazarin needed only several minutes to subdue the trophy peacock, after it crushed the top-water plug he was casting. The current IGFA world record is 89 cm.

While fishing Austria’s Mur River on December 10th, Russian angler Ilya Sherbovich caught this impressive 13.74 kg (30 lb 4 oz) huchen (Hucho hucho) that could earn him the new men’s 10 kg (20 lb) tippet class world record. Sherbovich was casting a rodent pattern fly when the fish hit, and needed approximately 10 minutes to subdue the fish. After properly documenting and weighing the fish on shore, Sherbovich released the fish alive to grow even bigger. The current IGFA world record is vacant, and if approved, this would be the largest fly caught huchen ever recorded by the IGFA.

AUSTRALIA: marlin nearly impales a fisherman

While trolling fishing off Port Stephens in Australia few days ago, a fisherman is lucky to be alive after a striped marlin jumped into the boat, waving its dangerous bill at his head.

US: two monster record blue catfish in North Carolina

North Carolina fishing angler  Zakk Royce is credited with breaking the state record for blue catfish one day, then breaking his own record less than 24 hours later.

The huge blue catfish weighed 91 and 105 pounds, respectively. The catches were made the past December on Lake Gaston.

The previous occicial North Carolina record was an 89 lb blue catfish caught at Badin Lake in 2006.

After releasing the fish that morning, Royce and his father baited new lines, and Royce hooked up with the larger catfish.

This kind of catfish are the largest species of catfish in the US. Blue catfish are native to the Mississippi, Missouri, and Ohio River basin systems, and have been introduced elsewhere in the United States.

The IGFA (International Game Fish Association) lists as the world record a 143 lb (64.7 kg) specimen, caught in Virginia’s Kerr Lake in 2011.

ALASKA: found rare an mysterious fish

The past week on a beach of  Gustavus , Alaska a strange and mysterious fish was discovered.

Jeff Jarvis made the odd discovery; this rare fish is a ragfish, the second one to have washed ashore in the same area within six months.

This ragfish  measured 66 inches, and like the other was a female full of eggs.

Seems that ragfish typically inhabit deep water up to 4,500 feet, feature flesh that is like squid and gets its name because of its limpness, the result of a bone structure that is mostly cartilage.
