Snook of a lifetime on fly (at least for me)

Was fishing the surf last Monday, and was already having a terrific day, landed eight fish up to this point. At the end of a long cast, had a crushing strike on the first strip. A guy up on the jetty yelled, "Dude, that's a big fish!" Into the backing and then the fish just powered down the beach. Put a ton of heat on it, but often still couldn't really move it. When I got it close, it seemed like it just doubled in size. Measured at 42 inches and heavy. Couldn't sleep that night...:)
