The International Game and Fish Association has released their list of the top 10 catches of 2013
The list is part of the IGFA Angler’s Choice Contest. You can vote for your favorite catch on the contest’s website for a chance to win a YETI cooler and other prizes.
This year’s IGFA Angler’s Choice Contest includes some spectacular catches from around the globe. The American entry is a 58 pound muskellunge caught in Michigan’s Lower Peninsula River.
The biggest catch on the Angler’s Choice Contest list is a whopper 427-pound yellowfin boated in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. The other entries include a roosterfish, an Atlantic cod, a Papuan black snapper, a dolphinfish, a striped marlin, a giant snakehead, a monster brown trout and an Atlantic sailfish.
Voting for the contest started on Saturday, and will continue until March 31.
We’ve seen our fair share of record catches this winter. Some of the notable recent record fish include a 114-pound catfish caught by a 12-year-old angler and a world record bluefin tuna caught by a woman in New Zealand.
