How good is your fish ID❓Justin Soong Chern Tan recently caught this beautiful 4.45-kilogram (9-pound, 12-ounce) fish to potentially set the first IGFA All-Tackle World Record for this species 🎣. On January 12, 2020, Justin was trolling a Halco Tackle Sorcerer 125 out of Port Dickinson, Malaysia 🇲🇾, and landed the toothy fish after a 5-minute fight. Comment below if you know the scientific name or a common name for this species ⤵️.

Two years ago today, Charles "Jed" Mixter set the All-Tackle world record for snubnose pompano (Trachinotus blochii) with this 8.21-kilogram (18-pound 1-ounce) fish that he caught while flyfishing the flats of the Seychelles 🇸🇨 with guide Wes Rapson. Mixter played the fish for approximately 25 minutes after it ate the crab-patterned fly he was casting. Once landed, the fish was quickly weighed, documented, and released alive 🙌🏼.
