Catch of the "Weak": Record Weakfish

width=300 You could say that angler Michael Byrne, of Staten Island, N.Y., had his best weak ever when he hauled in this pending-record catch. While fishing Great Kills, N.Y., this spring, Michael caught a 14-pound 8-ounce weakfish using a bucktail with a pork rind. Yesterday the International Game Fish Association (IGFA), the organization in charge of approving all record catches, announced that Michael's weakie is in line to break the boy's smallfry-division record for the species. The old record is 11 pounds 15 ounces. The report didn't say whether or not Michael released the fish. But if he kept it, you can be sure that he and his family a few meals worth of some tasty fish. Congrats on the awesome catch, Michael! —Colin
