11 years ago today, on the fourth of July, Steve Kwiat set the IGFA Men’s 4-kg (8 lb) Line Class World Record with this 12.7-kilogram (28-pound) yelloweye rockfish 🏆. Steve was jigging in the Gulf of Alaska and landed his record rockfish after a 10-minute fight. Steve is no stranger to Alaska records and this was the last of his 8 records caught in Alaskan waters. #fishIGFA ... See MoreSee Less

Bryan Mora-Tapia had a goal of completing an IGFA Bass Grand Slam. On May 25th, 2020, he was able to quickly catch both a striped bass and a smallmouth bass in Port Deposit, Maryland, but the largemouth bass eluded him. After traveling to several fishing spots, fishing from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., and moving over to Delaware, Bryan was finally able to catch a largemouth to complete the slam 🙌🏼!
