Today’s story takes us back two years to the IGFA Headquarters when our staff noticed a pair of peacock bass in distress. One fish was stuck inside a plastic bag that found its way into the lake.

They quickly jumped into action, grabbed a net, freed the fish from the bag, and released it back into the lake where the pair swam off. 🙌🏼

Plastic pollution chokes our waterways and harms animals in both saltwater and fresh. As anglers, we can work to help reduce the plastic pollution issue.

Here are a few tips to #kickplastic:
1. Use re-usable shopping bags, water bottles, and cutlery.
2. Participate in local habitat cleanups.
3. Recycle monofilament.
4. Make sure items are secure on our boats as we go out on the water.

Stanley Talbot Gillies recently caught this impressive 147.5-kilogram (325-pound) Atlantic bigeye tuna to potentially set the new IGFA Male-Junior World Record. He was trolling a bullet lure around Jasuic Point, La Gomera, Spain, and landed the massive bigeye after a 40-minute fight. Congratulations, Stanley, on an incredible catch and your first potential IGFA World Record. #fishIGFA ... See MoreSee Less
