Thought I would just throw this out there for sheer entertainment value. We ended up getting a rough estimate of 88 inches on the beast. I've caught a couple that were just slightly oversize but this is my biggest so far. Too bad my dad decided to turn the camera sideways! This fish kicked my butt, but I won in the end!

Fixed your embedding, Jay. Edit it and you will see how I did it.

Thanks guys, that thing fought like a freight train! Almost had to break free from the anchor at one point, the fish took out 75-100yds of line in like nothing flat but I was able to stop him. The main issue I was having is I'm so used to the left handed retrieve reels that I normally use. So for my Bday I'm getting a good left hand retrieve Penn!

Whoe!!! Hey Jay, until I turned my monitor a quarter turn to the right I thought you hooked a dolphin.
