The Quest for a Record – A Cheap Angler Fishing documentary.

A couple years ago, when I first started doing fishing videos on YouTube, I landed a very large Rio Grande Cichlid. I took it home, and ate it that night. It was roughly 14 inches, and close to 3 lbs. After eating it, I found an article about the world record Rio Grande Cichlid, and saw that it was only 11 inches and 2 lbs.

Since then, the idea of catching a record size fish has been in the back of my mind everywhere I go. I rarely keep any fish I catch anymore, so keeping a record size fish just doesn’t feel right. Then I discovered Texas Parks and Wildlife keeps track of Catch and Release Records, as well as Water Body Records.

This documentary is the story of me setting out on a quest to bring in a record size fish, and get it submitted.
