My Biggest AJ

This was a fish I shot at one of our artificials in 105 Ft about 2 months ago.(on my Birthday) He was even too big for the Goliath that came out of the wreck to investigate. 86 lbs. gutted. Stoned him with a little help from my little friend. Caught up with the shaft before it hit the bottom. Yeah Jim, I am only 3'5".

I agree it looks bigger.

Here is my PB which was 118 pounds. Yours looks pretty long.

Mine was indeed very thick though.

The story is here: http://www.spearboard.com/showthread...61#post1169961

Read the thread TT.

Quote:
The viz for his two dives at 80 feet and 100 feet was poor at around 20-30 feet which was the same as last weekend, but the water temp had dropped to 65 degrees.

I did a deep drop below 200 feet and the viz was better than last weekend at around 30-40 feet of viz. Water temp was also 65 degrees or lower. I found some monster amberjacks and (hopefully during the competition some monster groupers) and decided to roll one.
