Rockett’s Greater Amberjack

“On January 13th angler Reece Rockett – age 15 – caught this massive 39.26 kg (86 lb 9 oz) greater amberjack (Seriola dumerili) while fishing aboard the Badfish out of Port Aransas, Texas, USA. Rockett was fishing with live bait and needed just over 30 minutes to subdue the hard-fighting AJ on the heavy tackle outfit she was using. If approved, the catch will replace the existing Female Junior world record of 24.08 kg (53 lb 1 oz)”
