Kilsong may have caught a new Texas state record Marbled Grouper on the Big E. The fish was being certified and it appears that it is a new state record.

Snagged's AJ's weighed 101.55 and 91.? pounds...so he is winning first and second place in the Fiesta tournament. He did set a tournament AJ record with the 101.55 pounder.

The state record for a Marbled Grouper is 27.65 pounds and was 35.24" in length. It was caught in 2006. It would nice to see Kilsong break the record.

As for snagged, those are some huge AJ's. Especially one right after the other. Next time please take a little water break before sending down another bait.

Last thing that I heard from Snagged....he is having the polygraph interview to confirm his legitimacy. (I always thought that he was illegitimate...that old bastard). :D

My 27.70 lbs marbled grouper.
I heard that Texas State record marbled grouper is also IGFA record fish, but I am not qualited for IGFA as I used the rail briefly.
The fish was caught on a 8 0z hammered diamond jig. I caught a yft on the same jig.

kil did the marbled grouper fight much different than other grouper?

congrats, the diamond jig strikes again!
The grouper fought pretty hard. I told a mate I had a grouper of at least 30 lbs while fighting.
I got another marbled grouper on the same jig and TJ got one on OTI jig too.

from what Angelo said, you guys were at some good grouper grounds

oh - was the casting much tougher than the trip 2 weeks ago because of more experienced people?

Those are some nice grouper. Where abouts were you all fishing for the grouper? The Possession Limit is about the only boat I know of that consistently catches them. They own the previous records for that species. They've reset the record for it several times now (at least 5 that I know of).
