The Biggest Fish Ever Caught On a Rod and Reel


The biggest fish ever caught on a rod and reel is a 3,427 pound Great White Shark! The awesome person who caught this is Captain Frank Mundus. I’m very, very surprised that it took only 50 minutes to reel this beast in.

This relates to engineering because people had to use any thing they can to catch and cook fish from things ranging from sticks to bones. That’s part of how they survived and how we’re here living today. And it’s amazing how rods and reels evolved to what they are today.
