American angler Bruce Jackson boated what looks set to be a new All Tackle word record for Snoek (Thyrsites atun) with this 16lb 15oz fighter caught off the coast of Chile in South America. 

Jackson, fishing with a local guide out of the Puma Lodge, needed more than 30 minutes to land the fish after it took the streamer pattern fly he was casting.

If approved, the catch will replace the existing All-Tackle record of 6.46 kg (14 lb 3 oz).
