You gotta love this!
A 6 year old just bagged a 138lb halibut (had help from dad
reeling it in).
I'm depressed now.
I was just down in the Florida Keys and was thrilled with my 24 inch yellowtail snappers. Now I realize they were guppies!

Hey!
LOL I was so proud of those yellowtails. Evil barracuda kept trying to eat them
off the line as they were being reeled in so getting any was a killer.
But hey they were tasty!

Ha! They had to shoot it with a shotgun. I never thought what has to be done when you get one this big.

187 pounds. And yes, it took over an hour but we pulled this barn door in all by ourselves, just couldn't lift it enough to get the whole thing in the picture.

That link does not work, but I have the story on my site. Not that I am promoting my site.
Also, the one in this thread is HUGE.
