Aussie angler Adam Reay caught and released this massive Papuan black snapper (Lutjanus goldiei) while fishing the Fly River in Papua New Guinea.

The 88 cm fish hit a diving lure that Reay was casting along the shoreline, and put up a brutal, short lived fight on heavy spinning tackle.

Once landed the fish was quickly documented and released alive. If approved, Reay’s catch will tie the All-Tackle Length record, which currently stands at 87 cm.
