Memorable Catches

Alfred C. Glassell Jr.

A world record 1,560 lb fish caught in August of 1953 off the coast of Cabo Blanco in Peru.
The catch still holds the All-Tackle and men’s 60 kg (130 lb) line class titles to this day and was caught in a one hour and 45 minute fight.

Dave Curnock

513kg (1133lb) black marlin for Dave “Curno” Curnock on Sea Mite on 16 November 1979. Yet another example of big fish in small boats!
