Captain Alex posted the trip of the season so far with Terry and Julie Edwards’ group loading up the trophy case with excellent releases.
This MASSIVE Blue Marlin was the headliner of the trip.
Shortly after that battle, the mega panga nabbed a wonderful Saifish release.
Team Edwards came inshore to finish the day, and saved the best for last…this Rooster Fish weighed 72lbs. according to the Boca Grip.
The IGFA All-Tackle Record is 114lbs., however the second place fish was 85lbs. This fish caught by the Harvester is close to the old record.
Most impressively, the record fish were in 1960 and 1954 respectively…clearly this size of Rooster Fish have not been seen in more than 5 decades.
Great work by Team Edwards and the mega panga Harvester!
