What a fish! IGFA representative Dr. Ken Neill III confirmed this week that a 70-pound, 7-ounce snowy grouper, caught this May in Norfolk Canyon by angler Roger Burnley on the Healthy Grin, is a new All-Tackle World Record.

It's the second snowy grouper world-record for Burnley and the sixth for the Healthy Grin.
