Veteran angler Tom Pfleger of Newport Beach, California, USA recently submitted another line class record for white seabass (Atractoscion nobilis). Currently holding the men’s 01 kg (2 lb) – 03 kg (6 lb) line class records – Pfleger’s newest submission of a 25.85 kg (57 lb 0 oz) catch aims to replace Jimmy Decker’s current 04 kg (8 lb) line class record of 23.63 kg (52 lb 1 oz). Pfleger landed his most recent seabass while fishing south of the border in Ensenada, Mexico on June 22, 2011. Forty five minutes after the potential record fish inhaled Pfleger’s live squid and sent his Shimano TLD screaming, the skilled angler had the fish subdued and in the boat.
