MSNBC — Big Game Fishing

In a story for Forbes—which was also picked up by MSNBC—I wrote about so-called big game fishing, polling veteran pursuers of big fish to pick their top destinations to cast and troll for beasts of the deep.

The scaly, snaggletoothed swimmers dwell in jungle waters, lakes and deep oceans alike, leaping, cutting wakes, sweeping down, and sometimes swallowing a hook to fight.

Some highlights include:
>A 9-foot long giant catfish on the Courantyne River in Suriname
>“Man-size” tarpon, Isla Vieques, Puerto Rico
>Monster Muskie in Mille Lacs, Minnesota
>8-foot sturgeon on the Colombia River in Oregon

Below are a few teaser slides from the story. Or, click here——for the full piece.
