This well-written collection of tales from the life of a champion angler will be a treat for anyone who loves the thrill of sport fishing. Chasing Records takes listeners on a series of adventures from the life of Robert "Bobo" Cunningham as he chases, and catches, record-size game fish throughout the world’s waters. Robin Bloodworth's folksy baritone brings Cunningham's tales to life; listeners will practically be able to feel the sea breezes, taste the tang of salt, and feel the thrill of victory as Cunningham reels in the big ones.
All anglers want to catch record-size gamefish - author Robert Cunningham figured out how to do it.
When the author hooks and fights a record-size tarpon in the Gulf of Mexico for more than eight hours, only to lose it at boat side, he is already many years into his 20-year effort to break as many IGFA rod and reel and fly rod records as he can. Follow him as his fishing quest takes him to the Chandeleur Islands off the Louisiana coast, the Bahamas, Florida, the backwaters of the Mobile Delta, and way offshore. His enthusiasm is catching and his angling ability well-honed - as proven by his setting 11 world records in one year!
