thats a great fish to put back and see if he can live another 75years or so
Aaarrrggghhh! There be monsters here!
That white sturgeon was an absolute monster.
A lot of these fish look like fish we have in the united states just under a different name.
Wow some really odd looking fish.Some real rod benders!
that is a big fish
Some of these fish are actually pretty small compared to what I would imagine for a world record fish. The one fish set the world record at only a little over a pound. This makes a person wonder how big that species normally is.
Fishing downstream from Nuclear Power Plants catching mutant fish!
To me, nearly all of these fish seem like a variation of our carp or a whitefish.
We do have the snakehead and pike minnow here in Idaho and both are invasive species from other places. I am sure they have a lot more invasive species along the Mississippi and back east.
On that note, I know of a picture of a white sturgeon taken from near Twin Falls, Idaho that weighed over 1500 pounds, from the Snake River. It's not mentioned in these records so it must be excluded for some reason. Good pics anyway.
Well we do have a few of them. And some now invasive which is awful.
Wow some of them sure are Ugly fish! I am happy that we don't have them in the USA
Dang how many fish species are in the reservoir in Australia, were I am from Reservoirs are not very big, and usually only hold trout or maybe one other type of fish. Three different records on this list alone from there.
This world record altai osman was caught in 2009 by Yuri Diachenko on Lake Khoton, Mongolia. It came in at 12 pounds, 13 ounces and 31 inches.
