Not really close. It was a 192 lber. Nice fish but there have been a dozen or so fish around 200 lbs caught in the last couple years up and down coast. The fish would have been closer but was too skinny.

Sorry guys, not sure what happened. It showed up right on my iPad when I posted it. Don't get a crick in your neck.

True, however apparently the method used to calculate the weight on the boat was the fork method with the error in it...possibly the reason why they thought they had a record?

With the older calculation, it still comes out to 206.92 - pretty short of the state record. I don't blame them for bringing it back to see, but it is well short of the state record. It was 85 x 40 inches. The state requires an 85 inch fish to be killed. That does not mean that every 85 inch fish will be a state record. They set it at 85, anticipating you could have a fat 85 inch fish that could break the record of 210 lb 11 ounces. The fish in the video came out to 78 x 44 inches and 199 lbs.

The map below shows where the fish went. Tag came off in December.
