On this day in 1964, W. B. Whaley set the IGFA All-Tackle World Record after he caught this incredible 26.3-kilogram (58-pound) channel catfish. Mr. Whaley was casting an Atlantic coast bucktail jig on the Santee Cooper Reservoir, South Carolina, when the massive catfish struck. The fish was no match for his Bronson rod and reel and Mr. Whaley landed the record catch that has stood for 56 years now. #fishIGFA ... See MoreSee Less

On July 6, 1985, Antuan Taleb D was trolling a Sea Witch with a ballyhoo off of Salinas, Ecuador 🇪🇨, when he hooked into the 137.89-kilogram (304-pound) record tuna.
