I saw this on YouTube I am not sure how to post videos but they pull up a monster mingo in it that I thought was worthy of sharing. If I didn't post it right please feel free to fix it.

I thought it was a mingo. Sorry. Guess I never saw a queen before. What is the difference?

The eye is bigger and the tail has more of a V, the scales are bigger too. I don't think we have them around here.

I don't think its a blackfin snapper - no black at the base of the pectoral fins

dang - spent a perfectly good afternoon watching the Saints rather than fishing - I think I will go sit in the boat for a while and idle the engines - always makes me feel a little better

Probably somewhere in the Bahamas or other region of the Carribean. There are islands where you only go a few miles and you are in 3000ft of water.
