Pennsylvania Angler Lands State Record False Albacore

Delaware’s Division of Fish & Wildlife has confirmed a new state record false albacore caught June 29 by a Pennsylvania angler from the fishing boat Get Bent in Masseys Canyon, about 35 miles offshore from Indian River Inlet in the Atlantic Ocean.

Tim Parrill of Wellsville, Pa., caught the record fish, which measured 30.75 inches long, had a 22-inch girth and weighed 20.5 pounds.

The fish outweighed by a half-pound the previous state record 20-pound false albacore, caught in 2008 by Christian Anderson.
