    280 lbs tiger shark in key west florida when i was 12.....yeah yeah i know i didnt "hook it," i left that to the first mate but thats assurance that you dont miss a fish of a lifetime. i did fight it for close to an hour. after going out a lot and doing tournaments, i got to hook sailfish and mahi mahi. next time i go deep sea, i wanna do all the hooking :big_smile:

    Mine was a 5' shark but I didn't weigh it so I don't know how heavy it was.

    Blue cat- 35lb brute from the potomac this past weekend :)
    Channel cat-13+ lbs cause the scale bottomed out at that (Rocky Gorge)
    White- 2 lbs (Rocky Gorge)
    Pike- 34" Manitoba
    Walleye-22" Manitoba
    Rainbow Trout-18.75" Stream by my house (middle patuxent)
    Brown Trout- 17.5" Stream by my house (middle patuxent)
    LM ba$$- 22" (Patuxent River/Rocky Gorge Res.)
    SM ba$$- 19" (Manitoba at the launch dock for the float plane while i waited)
    Sunfish/Bluegill- 11" (a local pond), 12" (Deep Creek Lake)
    Eel- 4 ft or so (Lake Elkhorn)
    Creek Chub-13" (Middle Patuxent)
    White Sucker- 14" (middle patuxent)
    Crappie- 10" (Trap pond, DE) (i don't go for crappie much at all)
    Yellow Bullhead- 18" (lake Elkhorn)
    Brown Bullhead- 16" (Deep Creek)
    Flat Bullhead (in one of my guides)- 12" (Deep Creek)
    Carp- 16" (Lake Straus)

    Most of these are in inches and not lbs because i don't usually carry a scale with me and its alot faster to tape it, take pics if i have a camera (rare) and release then it is to weigh it... I'd rather see them survive then me have a weight on it...
