Potential Record-Set Yellowtail Snapper in Two Pound Line Class

On November 22, 2018, angler Chip Constantini potentially set the new men 1 kg (2 lb) line class world record for yellowtail snapper (Ocyurus chrysurus) with this 2.15-kilogram (4-pound, 12-ounce) fish that he caught while fishing off Key Colony Beach, Florida. Costantini skillfully played the snapper for nearly 20 minutes on his ultra-light line before he could land the fish. If approved, the catch will replace the current record of 1.02 kilograms (2 pounds, 4 ounces).
