    IMO
    the record fish shold be just that

    the bigest fish of a species

    no name of who caught it
    no name of venue

    Exactly - look at Bob Richards, I don't wish to degrade his capture, but even he would have agreed he was a novice angler in the right place at the right time. There are certain others who have made a habit of being in the 'right place at the right time' on a regular basis, maybe not catching a record fish but consistantly being there or there about and catching what a given water is capable of throwing out.
    That's about as big as a fish that big gets

    Yes Brummie it's the fish that holds the record. It's not the angler that weighs 44lbs or whatever the record breaking weight was.

    Right!

    The record is of the largest authenticated capture by fair angling for each species

    I think the possibility of ever catching a record fish is well out of reach for most anglers, just a dream. When i look at the current record list the weights given are just fantasy fishing, truly impossible specimens.
    I think that it is just as great an achievemnet to catch a venue record afterall to quote that often used angling cliche you can only catch what is there.

    Absolutely spot on. There are many great anglers about who choose to ignore the lime light. Who consistantly catch top fish for thier venues and one or two have one lucky break and milk it for all it's worth, and usually get very boring about it too.

    Well that's 2 of us. But mate, I believe most anglers do.
    Three of us.

    Catching big fish (for the waters fished), or winning matches, consistently is how good angling is defined.

    A one-off record is no measure of anything.

    Exactly..consistent catching of exceptional fish, & that's why I think Terry Hearns capture of Mary has to be up there as one of the 'great' record captures. A series of exceptional captures from impossible venues culminating in the capture by design of the star fish at a new record weight.
