Looks like a cubera to me but I guess I'm not used to seeing a mangrove of that size, nice fish either way though!

We were out last summer and caught one that was also 26 inches long but we didnt weigh it. I would guess around 8-10 pounds as well.

he weighed 1 gallon...LOL pretty sure it was mangrove but the tooth patch will be checked on the next one.... i caught one bigger in main pass but it came off the jig about 6 feet from coming over the handrail and when the rod loaded in the other direction it broke the jig off the line.... it went about 150 feet up in the air and then back into the big blue toolbox....

1 gallon of water is 8.34lbs not sure about saltwater could be a little more as it is more dense that freshwater.
