I shattered the previous state record using the following

Scat Cat 56hr Tuna Trip piloted by Capt. Russell
Synit GOM Popping Rod
Quantum Cabo 80
Magaroni Tuna Candy Lure

I would like to thank all of my (future) sponsors (wink) for enabling me the opportunity to win such an epic battle using their superior equipment and expert charter service.
I was confident I could win such a challenge that the MAGARONI LURE and Capt Russell (of the SCAT CAT) put me on using my SYNIT ROD coupled to my QUANTUM CABO 80 reel that landed such an amazing fish!

Thank you! :)

nope, still pretty cool ,man.

I will say that one is about 2/3 the size of the one we had to
extricate from Joe Livingston's arm back in '09, that thing was massive.
there's a pic around somewhere, but that thing was close to 4 feet long.
IIRC, that one came on a maguroni, too!!

Hey Brian, did it bite his arm? I have read that they are infamous for jumping out of the water and spearing people through the chest/lungs etc.. Pretty freaky!
kind of, Joe & a deckie (Daryl, I think) were tring to un-hook it when it started slashing & it caught Joe on the forearm & wouln't let go. the wounds were supeficial at best, but he bled more than the fish, i think, hehe!
