Angolan angler Marco Couto has smashed the All Tacklle world record for the Longfin jack cravalle while fishing Barra do Kwanza near the Angolan city of Luanda with this 16.5kg (36lb 6oz) specimen.

Couto, who already has several IGFA world records to his name, tempted the brute with a large soft plastic lure and battled it for over 20 minutes. If approved it will beat the existing mark by over 3lb.
