IGFA Representative Meredith McCord recently returned from Canada with ELEVEN, yes, you heard that right, ELEVEN potential IGFA World Records.

The biggest catch of her trip was a 10.43-kilogram (23-pound) northern pike qualifying for the Women’s 10 kg (20 lb) Tippet category.

Meredith was fly fishing on Wollaston Lake when the fish hit her tarpon snake fly she had thrown its way. A mere four minutes is all she needed to land the pike. After it was measured and weighed, the fish was released back into the lake. Congratulations, Meredith, on a successful fishing trip.
