January 2012 Cubera Snapper Release Record

Cubera Snapper Release RecordFrench angler Jean Paul Estradere was casting topwater plugs off the coast of Isla Coiba, Panama on Nov. 25, 2011 when a massive 115 cm Pacific cubera snapper (Lutjanus novemfasciatus) exploded on his Sebile Splasher. With the help of local guide Olivier Charpentier, Estradere was able to boat this potential All-Tackle Length record fish in 10 minutes.

After a few quick photos and measurements, the toothy snapper was released alive to fight another day.
