We are excited to announce that Jason Schratwieser has been unanimously elected by the IGFA Board of Trustees to serve as the new IGFA president. Jason has served the organization as conservation director since he joined the IGFA in 2003. “I am deeply honored and humbled to serve as the IGFA’s eighth president,” Schratwieser said in his initial address after assuming the role of IGFA president. “We have a lot of work ahead of us to ensure the future of our sport and the fish we love to pursue. However, I am confident that with our incredibly talented staff and Board of Trustees, and passionate anglers like you, we are strongly positioned to take the IGFA to the next level.”

Yukihiro Sakamoto recently caught this beautiful 62-centimeter madai (Pagrus major) to potentially set the new IGFA All-Tackle Length World Record 🎣. He was bottom fishing in Bungosuido, Oito, Japan, and landed the madai after a 13-minute fight. Yukihiro currently holds the length record at 58-centimeters, but is looking to set the bar 4-cm higher! The fish was measured to the fork in the tail on the IGFA measuring device and released to fight another day 🙌🏼.
