WORLD RECORD CLAIM!

Massive congrats to Kelly Chambers who has smashed the women’s 24 kg World Record with this amazing 300 kg Broadbill Swordfish!

This is also the biggest sword ever weighed by a MBGFC member and a new All Tackle club record surpassing Ian O’Briens legendary 291.9 kg Swordfish caught way back in 1998 which still stands as the men’s 24 kg World Record!

This is not Kelly’s first rodeo as she also currently holds the World Record for Broadbill Swordfish on 8 kg line so well done to Kelly and Shannon Chambers, Captain Hunter Bryce and all the crew onboard the Ruckus involved in this incredible achievement!
