    For a second there, I thought that was JoshnSD posting a pic of Mackerel Man with a sand dab again. :D Seriously though... That's a really impressive fish, congrats buddy.

    Thanks for taking time to share the details in your report, certainly was an enjoyable read. Funny how an old rod can hold up when you need it too.

    Where's the pic of that YT?

    :cheers:

    Congrats, that is a monster. Seems I recall the world record fish was, at least, in the mid 50s in length. The pictures of it show that it was not 44.5" for sure. Think somebody at IGFA must have made a typo of some sort. The fish in my avatar was 45" and thick at 45.5lbs.

    Congrats on the monster halibut!!

    Those things are all over the road for weight when they get that long. My wife has two to her credit that were 47-1/2" that were 36# and 37#. When I gaffed them, I was sure she had caught 40lbers.

    Outstanding catch! A friend of mine caught one at Santa Rosa that was 60 inches and weighed 50lbs. Yours was a fatty for sure!
