Dennis Triang just completed his goal. It took him 10 years to catch an IGFA (International Game Fish Assoc.) US Freshwater State Record in each of the 50 states. Best for last... wearing an Aloha Shirt bought special for the occasion, Dennis caught a 1 1/2 pound largemouth on 12# test. A 5 1/2 pound peacock bass on 12# test. And a 4 1/2 pound peacock bass on a fly rod (20# tippet) Each fish must be weighed on a certified scale while standing on shore. Can't be standing on the boat. It must be measured, length and girth. Photos of the fish, angler with fish, measurement, and tackle. Then you fill out all the paperwork, get the signature of witnesses, and mail it along with a line sample and processing fee ($45) to IGFA in Florida. If everything checks out, in about 2 or 3 months... you get your record. Dennis isn't new to record catches. He holds 68 World Records and 48 State Records. (Alaska and Hawaii are now pending) His wife Maria holds a World Record, son Jonathan holds one, and daughter Zoe, age 4, has 2 World Records. Here is his web site... www.mahiexpress.com I have to tell you, fishing for a world record in a whole different ball game. Lots of hard work in addition to ones fishing skills. It was a pleasure fishing with Dennis and Maria.
