Elise Flynn potentially set the new IGFA Female Smallfry World Record, while big brother Robbie joined the IGFA Dolphinfish Trophy Club! Elise's mahi weighed in at 24.6-kilograms (54-pounds, 3-ounces), while her brother's fish was slightly heavier at 25.0-kilograms (55-pounds, 1-ounce).

Both fish were caught trolling Pakula Phantom lures around the Noosa Canyons, Australia. Congratulations to both of these young anglers on impressive catches: Flynn for the win!
