    by

    British angler Daniel Bennett reeled in the largest known fish ever caught from the British shoreline last week. Although the monster catch tops all the current records, it didn't meet the official requirements to make the books.

    Dolphin? Yellowtails? Huge schools of football yellowfin tuna? Instead of hitting the Sea of Cortez or Cabo San Lucas to target these species, join the El Niño buzz and try five miles off the coast of California.

    The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Service predicted that El Niño would bring these tropical and sub-tropical species closer to the California coast by August, but fisherman there are already finding them within casting distance.

    New State-Record Mahi Mahi Caught in Delaware-0

    by

    A 56.9-pound mahi mahi caught this month has set a new Delaware state record, according to the Delaware DNREC.

    William "Butch" Emmert of Rehoboth Beach hooked the fish while trolling an artificial ballyhoo rig and blue and white Ilander in about 360 feet of water, reports the Delmarva Town Crier. Emmert landed the fish on the deck of the Elizabeth Jane, which is captained by Jason King. Capt. King targeted the tip of the Baltimore Canyon for this record-setting fishing trip, which also yielded several smaller dorado and a 102-pound mako shark.

    Video: "Shark" Sighting in Lake Ontario Revealed as Shark Week Hoax-0

    by

    Strange things were afoot…errr, a fin…in Lake Ontario.

    A video posted to You Tube last week, allegedly shot on Wolfe Island, where the St. Lawrence River meets Lake Ontario, shows three anglers responding to a mystery fish breaching near a dock. The fish is gray in color, rather large, and has a prominent dorsal fin. The latter characteristic caused many to cry shark.

    That is, until Bell Media announced the video was staged to build hype for the Discovery Canada's already wildly popular Shark Week programming. The animal in the video was actually a prosthetic model shark.

    Huge Cubera Snapper Could Shatter Alabama State Record-0

    by

    A thirty-minute fight with a monster cubera snapper off the coast of Alabama may result in a new state record.

    Brett Rutledge and David Simms were trolling with live hardtail for mackerel in 170 feet of water about 40 miles off of Dauphin Island when something big hit one of the lines. Rutledge immediately grabbed the Shimano Speedmaster reel spooled with 30-pound-test monofilament line and commenced to fighting whatever was on the other end.

    "At first I thought it was a big amberjack because I'd caught quite a few jacks earlier. But when it ran away from the wreck we were fishing, I immediately thought it was a shark," Rutledge told AL.com.

    "Then I got a visual on it and told David, 'Get the gaff!'"

    Monster Pacific Halibut Will Not Qualify for IGFA World Record-0

    by

    Although an enormous Pacific halibut caught in the Alaskan panhandle port of Gustavus is one of the largest landed in the Pacific Ocean in a decade, it will not make the record books.

    The 482-pound fish surpassed the previous 1996 record of 459 pounds, also caught in Alaska. But 77-year-old Jack McGuire lost his chance at the top spot in the IGFA record book when he asked for help during the half-hour fight and Captain Rye Phillips shot and harpooned the fish before hauling it in.

    The IGFA will not qualify a catch if the angler receieved aid or used any tool besides a gaff or net.

    "I think if [Capt. Rye Phillips] had known how big it was, he wouldn't have shot it," Deep Blue Charters manager Andy Martin told the Alaska Dispatch. Martin is Phillips' employer.

    Video: Small Shark "Attacks" Snorkler-0

    by

    The attacker was so tiny the incident was laughable.

    A snorkeler known only as Carlos was beset by a small shark in this newly viral video, reports the Huffington Post. Carlos and his friends were snorkeling at an unknown location when a shark chomped into his swim trunks. The tiny predator refuses to let go and even fights for a better grip. The group can be heard laughing in the video as Carlos tries to remove the shark, which he only achieves by exiting the water.

    by

    A roosterfish with odd discoloration and a worn tail-fin was caught in Baja California's East Cape region Sunday.

    The 40- to 50-pound fish looked as if it had been a canvas for a kindergarten finger-painting project. Dark blotches speckled its sides and the fish's stripes were missing.

    Video: Black Marlin Leaps Into Boat, Scatters Anglers-0

    by

    Billfish acrobatics can be a stunning part of offshore sport fishing, but when the bill comes flying straight at the anglers, things can get scary fast. Check out this marlin going airborne into a trio of fisherman. Fortunately, it looks like the flailing fish left no one injured.
