No, only weighed it on the boga (over 11 lbs)and then I let it go and realized I hadn't measured it. I didn't even think about it being one of the biggest snappers caught for KW. I was fishing with 3 others from another team (Tarponweiser) and asked them what they thought the length had been so I could enter a length when I submitted it, they said 30". So I went with that... I got an email saying KW was going to lower the length to 25" since my photo does not show a length, that way first place can still be held by whoever has it. I don't have a problem with that at all. It's my fault for not getting a length... afterthat I was just extactic to get him in the yak!

Id guess 30 inches, but if you tell me how long that yellow float is, I'll tell you within a fraction of an inch how long that fish is

I'd say it's closer to the 25" than 20" but it's a beautiful healthy fish.

I'll edit mine too but still closer to 25" than 30".

Well Linda it is a great fish! Gotta keep that measure board handy since you are going to be breaking all my records this summer while Im in Miami! It is a rule that needs to be enforced as alot of the KW records are just guesstimates. I think it is a requirement to have a picture verifying the length to be a new record. The only exception is Tarpon Billfish and Sharks. Can you imagine if you had a 30" trout verified on a board and someone put up 31 that was never actually measured. I think if the records are going to have any validity in the future they are doing the right thing. Congrats on a great fish again.

Too funny!A 30" snapper would be >20lbs I believe. Heck of a fish from a yak on a beautiful day.

I wanted to make sure everyone knew the funny part was to CL on the 2,3 thing... not bashing but things get out of hand here sometimes.
