It's been 14 years since legendary angler and revolutionary skiff builder, Hal T. Chittum III, set the IGFA Men's 8-kg (16 lb) Tippet Class World Record with this MONSTER 67.1-kilogram (147-pound, 14-ounce) dogtooth tuna.

Hal was fly fishing Lizard Island near the Great Barrier Reef when the tuna struck a Howe Style Profile Tube Fly. After a 35-minute battle, he landed the fish, smashing the previous record by nearly 120 pounds.
