17-Year-Old Florida Angler Catches 693-Pound Swordfish, Possible World Record

cover

17-year-old Adam Satter’s second-ever attempt to catch a swordfish yielded what might be a world record for the species.

According to WPTV, Florida native Adam Satter reeled in a 693-pound swordfish 30 miles off the coast of Jupiter, Florida on Monday.

The catch might be viable as a world record. It’s unclear what the record would be, but it’s likely an age-based or tackle-based record. The International Game Fish Association lists the all-tackle world record swordfish as 1,832 pounds.

Satter and his father cut up the huge fish back at the docks and handed out steaks to onlookers. Swordfish meat can sell for $20 per pound.

The Satter family will likely be eating swordfish for many nights to come. It’s a delicious and hearty fish, and we certainly wouldn’t mind having a freezer full it. How about you?
