The Daily Mail is reporting that Marco Liebenow could break the world record for Atlantic halibut with this monster 513-pounder caught off the coast of Norway.
"It took 90 minutes to reel the 9-foot long fish to the surface. The fish was too big to haul onboard Liebenow's small boat so he and three friends tied a rope around its tail and towed it back to shore where it had to be hoisted on to the quayside by a crane," according to the Mail.

Despite huge ratings, it seems as though not everybody was happy with the Discovery Channel’s Shark Week.
And since seals don’t watch TV — especially documentaries that show them getting devoured in mega-violent slow motion - most of the harsh criticism is coming from humans.
The biggest complaint stems from the channel’s first show of the week, "Megalodon: The Monster Shark Lives." The problem? The show wasn’t an actual documentary. It was fake. [ Read Full Post ]
There are just too many humorous things going on and serious questions begging to be answered in this video. First of all, a guy has hand stuck inside the mouth of a toothy monkfish. That’s good stuff. The guys arguing amongst each other in Russian about just what to do with the situation adds to the tomfoolery. How do they solve this problem? A brilliant scheme is adopted to extract the guy’s arm - an obvious solution that involves a piece of wood, a metal pipe and a knife. [ Read Full Post ]
Here’s a fish love story for you. There’s a local dolphin named Dave that lives in the waters of Combe Martin Bay of the coast of Devon, England. There’s a local girl, Lucy Watkins, age 14, who was out kayaking those same aquamarine waters with her grandparents, Nina and Mike, on July 25th.
The Watkins and other locals have known of Dave for years. The mammal, always gregarious and affable, sometimes entertains visitors with his clownish antics. Lucy was paddling around when Dave stopped by to show off some of his aerial antics. With a swish of his tail, he then dove down deep, surfaced with a 10-pound cod between his jaws, and then proceeded to present it to Lucy as a gift. [ Read Full Post ]
Foam poppers are deadly bass and panfish baits. For general duty, use an 8- to 8 ½-foot, 5-weight outfit with floating line and a one-piece tapered leader. Target grass edges, docks, gaps in lily pad fields, and pockets shaded by overhanging limbs. Vary your popper retrieves until you determine what triggers the fish. Slow retrieves with long pauses work best in hot or cold weather. During moderate conditions, daybreak and dusk bring active feeding periods, with panfish often blasting poppers the second they hit the water. [ Read Full Post ]
Talk about a pig! The blokes from across the globe have some seriously gigantic fish hanging off the coast of New Zealand. This particular eye-popping specimen created a buzz in social media last week when the photo was posted to Imgur. We got the inside-scoop from the skipper who helped boat the fish. The bass weighed a whopping 57 kg (125 pounds) and was hauled in by Mark Johnston while on a bottomfishing expedition with Enchanter Fishing Charters off the Three Kings area around Ranfurly Banks.

Myerson hosts his 81.8-pound world-record striped bass in 2011, which won him “Striper of the Year” honors in On The Water’s Striper Cup.
I'm just going to go ahead and say it: Greg Myerson is the greatest living striper fisherman.
Anyone who has credited Greg Myerson’s world-record, 81.8-pound striped bass to luck doesn’t really know the man. Myerson’s catch was the product of years of studying the fishery, honing his skills and catching (and releasing) really big striped bass. [ Read Full Post ]
