While most of us go back to our desk jobs and try to make our way through those Thanksgiving leftovers, angler Jada Holt has been putting in work.

While fishing off the coast of Ascension Island, Holt hooked the catch of her life: a 1,305-pound Atlantic Blue Marlin. The fish was so big it earned its spot as the fourth largest fish ever weighed, thus winning a pending world record. Amazingly, the catch only took Holt 15 minutes to reel in, which comes out to around 87 pounds per minute. Damn.


The fishing gene must run in the Holt family. Jada is the daughter of the world-renowned fishermen Chip Van Mols, who hooked 1,266 and 1,058-pound marlins in the past. Like father like daughter.

This past summer, a Kona fisherman also hooked a 1,368-pound marlin, which he used to make a whole lot of marlin sausage that he shared with his buddies. Here’s to hoping Jada shares her wealth too.
