Huge Barramundi: New Record?

98 Pound Barramundi

Checkout this huge fish, it’s about the size of the fisherman standing next to it. Denis Harrold, caught this monstrous barramundi after a grueling 15-minute fight from his kayak.


Yep, that’s right, he caught this new record by fishing from a kayak. A new popular way to catch both saltwater fish and freshwater fish these days.

The huge barramundi weighed in at 98 pounds and was caught at Lake Monduran in Australia last December.

Currently the fish is pending as the new record from the IGFA. The fishing lure Harrold caught the huge fish on was Squidgies Slick rig. A popular bait many fishermen use on barramundi.

The features of the barramundi really reminds me of a freshwater largemouth bass. The fish is called a Asian Seabass, but it’s in an entire different family of fish than the largemouth bass.

Barramundi is a species of catadromous fish in family Latidae of order Perciformes. The osmoregulatory abilities of barramundi allow their culture in both freshwater and saltwater environments. Barramundi sure is an interesting fish!
