New Zealand IGFA Rep­re­sen­ta­tive and Life­time Achieve­ment Award win­ner Scott Tin­dale re­cently sub­mit­ted a world record ap­pli­ca­tion for a 68.55kg (151lb 2oz) mako shark (Isu­rus oxyrinchus) that he landed with just 1kg (2lb) line.

Tin­dale hooked the mako while chunk­ing off Lit­tle Bar­rier Is­land on March 5. Af­ter feed­ing the fish a chunk of skip­jack tuna, Tin­dale man­aged to stay con­nected to fish for ap­prox­i­mately five min­utes, un­til it got close enough to the boat for the leader to be grabbed. If ap­proved, the 68 to 1 catch will re­place the ex­ist­ing men’s 1kg (2lb) line-class record, which stands at 68.2kg (150lb 5oz). -

Mul­ti­ple world-record holder Scott Tin­dale added an­other claim to his re­sumé – a 68.2kg mako shark on 1kg tackle.
