Monster Fish Breaks Record


"joey: we were speechless. We didn't say anything for a while." JJ:"We were fishing in about 400 feet of water" "Joey: It was the biggest fish I'd ever seen." "JJ: We put the bait down on the bottom and it was down there about a half an hour before it got bit. The bait was a big live hard tail. When we hooked up - I thought I had hit the bottom. Then I felt the big head shake." "John: Well, I hate to say it but I was snoring pretty good till I heard all the ruckus come up. Then I went to the back of the boat to lend a hand. But JJ had the pole and Joey had the boat under control so I was just a witness to the fact." JJ: "I put myself in a harness and just had to lay back and fight. It was about a 15 or 20 minute fight." "Joey: And I manned the steering wheel and steered the boat away from the rig so we could get it away." "JJ: Hang 'em up like a deer and skin the fish first." "JJ: Each side of the fish will probably weigh 50, 60, 70 pounds." "Joey: JJ's secret. I don't even know where I was. He blindfolds us on the way out." "JJ: We'll split it up. I'll make some phone calls and try to get rid of it fresh. The rest, we'll vacuum pack it and cook it. .. later. " A STATE BIOLOGIST WAS ON HAND TO VERIFY THE FISH'S WEIGHT. THEY BELIEVE IT'S ABOUT 33 YEARS OLD BUT WILL DO TESTING TO VERIFY THAT.
