A 24 kg (53 lb) freshwater snapper was caught on an exploratory trip with Solomon Sport Fishing Safaris.
This could be a new rod & reel record and also the new maximum size for the Freshwater Snapper or Spot Tail Bass. Length and weight are only estimations as there were no scales or measuring tapes on hand at the time of capture and the fish was released alive. Lodge credit for image, www.baiafishingpng.com .
