More world-record fish — 11 in all — were caught in 2015 on Rapala® lures than on any other brand of baits, the International Game Fish Association announced recently.
Storm baits yielded four IGFA world-record catches and a Williamson lure accounted for one as well. Six IGFA world-record fish were caught on Sufix line and a whopping 40 world-record fish were weighed on Rapala scales. Storm®, Williamson® and Sufix® are among the many respected names in the Rapala family of brands.
“Whether you’re fishing for a record or recreation, a derby or dinner, you’ll catch more and bigger fish on baits in the Rapala family,” says Rapala USA President Tom Mackin. “The world over, Rapala lures are the most trusted and relied upon baits to bag big fish and beat records – as well as fill limits, week in and week out.”
Rapala lures are responsible for more IGFA world records than any other lure brand in history, holding world-record catches on every continent except Antarctica. Rapala is the first and only lure manufacturer to receive an IGFA Lifetime Achievement Award.
