NORWAY: caught monster 84 lb Atlantic cod

While fishing in North Norway off famous Soroya island, Swedish angler Marica Eriksson  lands a record cod that gives her bragging rights for life.

She caught the record 84 pound (38 kilo) record Atlantic cod while on a trip with her father.

“It’s very fun to have caught a big fish like that,” Eriksson said in an interview. “I felt it would be a big fish, but I didn’t realize it would be that big until we came into the harbour!”

If approved by IGFA (International game Fish Association) the catch will not only replace the current record of 37.08 kg (81 lb 12 oz), but it will also be the third heaviest on record with the IGFA.
