Daniel Pipe, a 39-year-old heavy plant machinery driver from Pontypool, South Wales, went on a fishing trip to Norway with his friends and caught a record-breaking cod.

The cod weighed 102lbs 7oz (46.5kg), measured 160cm (5ft 2ins) long, and broke the previous International Game Fishing Association record for the longest cod ever caught.

Daniel spent 20 minutes fighting the cod, showcasing his determination and skill. When the fish came to the surface, everyone on the boat was speechless.

Norway’s clean waters and diverse marine life make it a top spot for fishing, and its waters are home to some of the largest cod in the world.
