Fished middle backside SCI with the massive parking lot. Only managed 1 fish but that's all we needed to fill the cooler. 77" fork length. 56" girth. Couldn't fit the fish whole in cooler or kill bag to get a weight on a certified scale. How much do you think this weighs? Some online fish calculators say this one put me in the 300# BFT club. Hooked at 7:40PM. 3 man quick tag team. Gaffed at 8:06PM. Yanked into the boat at 8:25PM (after lots of struggling) We couldn't hold the fish vertical so we had to lay on the floor to take pictures. The important details: Okuma Makaira 30IISEA. 130# threadlock & 130# fluoro wind-on leader. Drags set to 35# at strike on digital scale Phenix Black Diamond Hybrid PHD760X2H 200g flatfall glow/silver with Williamson Armored Dynamic assist hooks (10/0 8/0 combo). line tied to the barrel swivel provided by the assist hooks. Fish bit on a complete free-spool drop at 40 seconds (roughly 200' of line out with a big of angle to the line). It matched the marks we were seeing at 180'. No jigging. No wind & stop. Nothing fancy. I basically just bonked this thing on the head with a piece of metal. Hooks held strong. 8/0 was inside bottom lower jaw. 10/0 was on outside lower jaw.
