If that fish would have ripped through a few schools of fat bunker before being caught he might have been a world record. 78.5 lbs isn't that far off. If VA got that record that would be awesome.

Claude Bain went to see the fish also, this is what he told me: He said that it weighed 73.25 pounds. Capt. Pat Foster. Angler Fred Barns. They were south. Double parachute rig, sped up to go to a beehive, fish hit while they sped up. That was what Pat told him. It will be interesting what the official story is that Lewis comes up with.
