It’s been a busy month for record-seeking anglers! Almost 50 World Record applications were received at IGFA headquarters in May, and of those, these four potential fresh water records stand out from the crowd. Check out the highlights from anglers dorado and musky in Brazil and Michigan in the USA in this edition of the IGFA Hot Catches.
Don’t forget the cut-off date for new records to be included in the 2014 IGFA World Record Game Fishes book is just around the corner. Applications must be approved by the IGFA by October 13, 2013 and catches made within and outside of the USA cannot be approved until 60 and 90 days after the catch, respectively. Questions about a record or application? Contact World Records Coordinator Jack Vitek via firstname.lastname@example.org or 954-924-4246.
