Some guy caught a nice 37lb amberjack yesterday off Navarre pier. The pic is on their Facebook page and I don't know how to post pics, but I'm sure someone will post it to this thread.

Ive been a regular on Navarre Pier for over 40 years and that's a new one on me! Never seen or heard of an aj that big caught off any on our piers.
Good Job to the angler!

That thing is loooong and lean and I bet it was mean! Awesome catch from the pier, especially with all that structure to hit on the way in

have seen them off caught off the panama city pier back in 95 most 25in or so but a few keepers it was 28 back then or maybe less i didnt even have access to a boat so i wouldnt have known just remember 2 keepers that is the biggest by far it looks sick the head looks like it should weigh 50+ the body looks like 25 just wondered how it fought great catch off the pier remember piers are huge reefs i have heard of yellow fin around them all sails and dolphin are common these days the only fish i have caught within a mile of the beach that never seem to get caught off the piers is a wahoo wonder when that will happen anyway nice catch
