8 years ago today, Angelo Ruvio set the IGFA All-Tackle World Record with this incredible 29.57-kilogram (65-pound, 3-ounce) great northern tilefish (golden tilefish) 🏆. On August 8th, 2012 he set off to Poor Man’s Canyon, New Jersey, equipped with a Jigging Master reel spooled up with Jerry Brown line and his Capt Harry's Fishing Supply Co Inc rod.
