wow, just wow.


Think about not the size. But what that fish has done with it's fish. Different things eaten, mileage traveled, how many times it's been caught over the years if any.

That fish is special.

He weighed the fish at Block Island, unsure if the scale is/was certified, at 76 pounds 1 ounce. He then weighed it at Snug Harbor at 75 ponuds 8 ounces on the certified scale there. As usual in Rhode Island, and probably the reason I would let it swim, controversy has already started as to who landed the fish. The gentleman Pete, is of the utmost in character and contributes to many kids charaties, most who know him, that I spoke to say the right guy got the record, and are happy it is him. The jealous naysayers will be sure to down play this as much as they can however, and I hope it a short certification so the negativity will not last long to spoil his proud moment. I have a photo taken at Snug harbor with the fish in a 270 quart cooler that is unreal. The fish is 55 inches long and almost as big around. I will resize and post it later.

I believe a 55 inch fish is estamated to be 20 years old. Congrats to Pete and I bet the world record falls this year.

Randy, since last fall I have referred to this season as, "The Year of The Cow", and have predicted the fall of the world record this year since then. Looks like I have some agreement.

I'm very surprised it weighed that much only being only 55".... alot of 52-53" fish are only making the 54-55lb mark...and these are beefy fish, big shoulders and tail.., this tells me that this was a young fish still growing and not in decline,That fish looks very well proportioned, nice and healthy.... the boom in bait as of late is definatly aiding the growth of these big fish all along the eastern sea board...Congrats to the angler on the capture of that fine fish....
