    I just found out that the 126.5lb amberjack that I caught tuesday is offically the new state record. I caught it in about 350', sw of the swansboro hole. She went for a 9 oz abyss jig, and was caught on 80lb braid with 100lb leader.

    and a 8 dollar jig! we buy all that expensive crap because they look cool. honestly aj's will hit anything that moves fast up the water column.

    that fish is very long, looks to be angled out a ways too and still at his neck. damn there are some biguns in NC fo sho. cant wait to get back up there someday.B

    Yes guys I am a little upset we let my fish swim away but we weren't think state records. Mine was longer but a little thinner. I'm happy for him but ...

    The world record will fall this year no doubt and I know somone who will be going down there a lot starting next weekend

    Congrats again
