MIAMI, Florida -- Dr. Martin Arostegui of Coral Gables caught his first world record, a 10-pound tripletail, in 1994. Nearly 14 years later, a mullet snapper in Costa Rica became his 200th world record.

Dr. Arostegui is the first angler to reach the International Game Fish Association milestone of 200 world records.

He has caught giant snakeheads in Malaysia and the prehistoric dog-fanged giant trahira in Suriname. And, in 2006, he received international media attention for his largest fish ever caught on fly, a 385-pound lemon shark caught off Key West.

Herb Ratner of Greensburg, Pa., has the second most world records with 181.
