86 lbs and change gutted - probably mid to upper 90's with his guts in.

I'll have to find a picture...caught him in 1995.

Yeah they are pretty, I've only seen two in the water. Hooked one about 5' on my 706 and needless to say I lost it, wasn't ready for how fast it was(drag too tight) and the other was just a snake and couldn't get him to eat before he left. The only fish i've seen that looks prettier is a sail swimming around the boat chasing my bait

They're even prettier under water. Haven't caught any personally but have seen one or two hit the deck. 50-60#

Still lookin' for one over 80. This 72.3 is biggest to date, although this was 1st place fish at Bay Point 2008 and won a nice chunk of change!

86lbs is my biggest as of yet. My only 80+ but have caught 3 more over 70lbs. Best single day total was 13 but all were smaller fish from 15-40lbs. I agree they are absolutely awesome looking fish. The pics below are my favorites.
