Pending NY Record Tilefish - The Fisherman

Pending NY Record Tilefish


Robert Foley recently submitted an application for an IGFA All-Tackle Record with this massive 30.96-kilogram (68-pound, 4-ounce) great northern tilefish. Known in the region as golden tilefish, the species is often found in depths in excess of 500 feet. Robert was able to wrestle this record fish from the depths on a top and bottom rig. He was fishing the waters off Montauk, New York on July 11th when he landed the potential record. This record is currently pending and under review.
