MALAYSIA: caught a world record size snakehead
Here an interesting record news sent us from IGFA (International Game Fish Association - http://www.igfa.org):
Malaysian angler Roob Ganesan caught and released this beautiful 10.8 kg (24 lb) giant snakehead (Channa micropeltes) on January 15th while fishing in the Rawang region of Malaysia.
Ganesan needed only a few minutes to subdue the hard-fighting snakehead, after it crushed the lure he was casting.
If approved, the catch will earn him the new men’s 15 kg (30 lb) line class records, which currently stands at 7.3 kg (16 lb 1 oz).
