Massive congrats to Kelly Chambers who has smashed the women’s 24kg World Record with this amazing 300kg Broadbill Swordfish!

Kelly Chambers with her mighty world record claim catch.

This is also the biggest sword ever weighed by a Mercury Bay Game Fishing Club member and a new All Tackle club record surpassing Ian O’Briens legendary 291.9kg swordfish caught way back in 1998 which still stands as the men’s 24kg World Record!

This is not Kelly’s first rodeo as she also currently holds the World Record for Broadbill Swordfish on 8kg line; so well done to Kelly and Shannon Chambers, captain Hunter Bryce and all the crew onboard the Ruckus involved in this incredible achievement!
