We are so close to reaching the halfway mark of the 100,000 Youth Education Initiative‼️A huge thank you goes out to IGFA’s partners and network of supporters like the Big Game Fishing Club de France - BGFCF 🇫🇷 who are working toward educating the next generation of ethical anglers. Last month, they participated in the Carrefour National Pêche et Loisirs and reached around 500 children through the Passports to Fishing stations! 🙌🏼 Congrats on a great show to everyone involved!

It has been 21 years since Wayne Hobson landed this incredible 31.50-kilogram (69-pound, 7-ounce) southern yellowtail to set the IGFA Men’s 4-kg (8 lb) Line Class World Record 🏆. Wayne had been slow trolling live kahawai in the Hauraki Gulf, New Zealand 🇳🇿, when the record fish struck. After an epic 2-hour, 50-minute fight, he hauled the fish aboard the Venture and returned to Kawau Island for an official weight. This record has now stood for 21 years, will it ever be beaten❓
