Its also possible that this could end up being the largest recreationally caught sport fish in the gulf. I think that the 1152lb bluefin that was brought in to Port Eades 5 years ago was declaredthe largest.

Awesome catch, not to belittle it in any way but I thought a harpoon was not legal for an IGFA record? Maybe I was wrong. I cannot wait to see that monster. I bet that was a little scary when that baby came up!

"Only a single hook is permitted on any gaff. Harpoon or lance attachments are prohibited. "
