I don't post much, but check this out!
During the spring last year I boated a MONSTER mangrove snapper on a 4/0 mustad hook.About a 10 minute fight on ande 20# with 20# flouro. The fish was 31.6 inches long with a 22 inch girth, official weight was 17.6# after an unfortunate gut gaff and 3 hours on ice, so I decided to have him mounted. My fishing buddy was just telling me that a world record on a mustad hook was worth a MILLION dollars? Well, too late to enter it anyways and the record I believe was recently smashed out of Cocodrie, Louisiana. I have caught a quite a few out of Ponce between 10 & 15 #'s...what's your largest?
