Catching all nine billfish for the IGFA Billfish Royal Slam is an incredible feat for any avid angler. Most seek to complete it once, but IGFA Trustee Mark Davis just finished his 17th‼️ He achieved his latest IGFA Billfish Royal Slam after catching a beautiful black marlin in the Great Barrier Reef 🇦🇺 back in October of 2019. No one in the history of the IGFA has achieved more Billfish Royal Slams than Davis 🏆.

That double digit bonefish feeling! 🙌🏼 Dennis Triana recently caught this beautiful 4.54-kilogram (10-pound) Pacific bonefish to potentially set the new IGFA Men’s 3-kg (6 lb) Line Class World Record. Dennis was wade fishing around the flats of Honolulu, Hawaii 🌴, when he spotted this potential record fish tailing and casted a live crab its way. After an epic 20-minute battle of chasing the bonefish around the flats with a broken toe, faceplanting in the water, and opening the bail to prevent fraying on a mangrove, Dennis finally landed the trophy fish 🏆. Not only will this fish potentially be a new record, but it qualifies for the IGFA Trophy Bonefish Club 🎣.
