IGFA June Hot Catches
Angler Louis W. Melton traveled a few hours north from his hometown of Clarkesville, Md., on May18, 2012 to fish the Delaware Bay with IGFA Capt. Brian Wazkavek. Melton was soaking surf clams when the 125 cm black drum hit and took him for a 17-minute fight. The fish was successfully boated, measured, photographed and released alive, qualifying Melton for the potential All-Tackle Length record, which currently stands at 121 cm.
