It’s been 55 years since Evelyn M. Anderson set the women’s 12-pound-line-class world record for Pacific sailfish with this impressive 146.5-pound specimen. Anderson caught the record sail on November 14, 1962, while trolling a rigged flying fish off the coast of Palmilla, Mexico — a small town located just outside Cabo San Lucas. Despite the light-tackle outfit she was using, Anderson needed only 14 minutes to bring the fish aboard Carolyn, thanks to the deft boatmanship of local captain Juan Antonio Cervera.
