It’s been nearly 12 years since Marion Rose set the All-Tackle world record for cubera snapper with this 56.59 kg (124 lb 12 oz) fish – the second heaviest of any snapper species ever recorded by the IGFA. Rose was fishing an area off Louisiana, USA called the Garden Bank on June 23, 2007 when the fish hit.
