Welcome to another thrilling episode of RadCast Outdoors Podcast with your hosts, David and Patrick! Before we dive into today's remarkable story, don't forget to catch our show on Carbon TV, where you can explore the great outdoors with us. In this extraordinary episode, the spotlight is on Patrick as he achieves a monumental milestone in the world of angling. He reeled in a colossal white sucker in the pristine waters of Wyoming, a breathtaking catch that weighed an impressive 6 pounds and 8.4 ounces.
Patrick Edwards now proudly shares the IGFA all-tackle world record for his fish with Joel Anderson. Joel had set his record of 6 pounds and 8 ounces back on April 20, 1984, while fishing in the renowned waters of Rainy River in Minnesota. It's a thrilling tale of fishing prowess and dedication. Interestingly, Wyoming is not typically known for breaking world records in the fishing world. When you peruse the IGFA's record books, you'll discover that the Cowboy State has amassed only a fraction of the world records compared to places like Georgia, which boasts about three times as many records. Even Colorado and Minnesota, which have half and two-thirds as many records, respectively, shine brighter in the angler's paradise. Join us as we uncover the exciting details behind Patrick's world-record catch and what it means for the angling community right here on RadCast Outdoors Podcast!
It's been an exhilarating year for Edwards, and this latest achievement adds to his growing list of fishing accolades. Not only did he secure a world record, but he also clinched two state records, making it a trifecta of angling excellence. The Wyoming Game and Fish recognized his extraordinary accomplishments by bestowing upon him the title of 'Ultimate Angler,' which is the agency's highest honor. Edwards earned this prestigious distinction by recently catching an impressive 10 master angler species, showcasing his unmatched expertise and dedication to the sport. His journey is a testament to the passion and commitment that define the angling community, and we can't wait to share this remarkable story with you on RadCast Outdoors!"
