TBT: Florida Record Yellowfin Grouper, not

Caught this one about 30 years ago off The Elbow but didn't weigh it.  Should have, since the Florida record is 34 lbs.  Not saying this one was bigger, but I'm sure it was close.  This photo not only shows that it was a big Yellowfin Grouper, but also why my dad became a fisherman and not a photographer.  Don't remember if I posted this before, but since I don't have any recent catches to post........

    Nice one. It would be great if we were all that young again and there was still fish around. Guess we have to deal with getting old and lack of quality fish.
