Young Royal

Nine-year-old Jack McCluskey, from Palm Beach, Fla., has become the youngest angler ever to achieve the Billfish Royal Slam.

McCluskey gained the title April 16 catching a White Marlin off the coast of Cap Cana in the Dominican Republic -the last of the needed fish species to qualify.

McCluskey robbed the title from previous record holder, 10-year-old Wes Davis.
