Too heavy to weigh without

Too heavy to weigh without causing a lot of damage to the fish. Guessing it was around the 100lb mark. Couldn't lift it myself had to be put into my arms for the photo. Was caught on freshly caught squid in amongst a huge school of dhuys just before the ban last year. Gave my back a good work out and had to go the harness in the end. It was the last fish caught for the morning, the dhuys completely shut down while this was hooked.

Went back fine. Swam it for

Went back fine. Swam it for about 5 minutes and off she went. Love to know how old it was had a lot of scares on it. Look like it had been caught before. Not easy to bring a fish this size aboard for a quick pic before release. This one was netted over the head while someone else grabbed its tail. I suppose you just have to support the body as best you can.
