For me, probably a 120 lb Tarpon. Also caught some big ass nurse sharks before but dont count them
Not guilty y'all got to feel me
first, this thread is going to be worthless without pictures....for me, it's a black marlin I caught on my honeymoon out of puerto vallarta...captain estimated it at 500lbs...i think it may be closer to 400lbs....

Haha, hadnt thought of that. Just moved back to South Fl recently and have been on a fishing kick. Thats a hell of catch though. I havent done much offshore fishing like that. Only for dolphina few times. I lived in Panama for a little while and always regretted not going out fishing there. Supposed to be some great fishing there.
ok, pic added to post above...here are some others I've caught over the past couple of years. yellowfin tuna, wahoo, mahi...

You must be in the blue shirt. You look young to be getting married.
Why did you kill this fish?

Caught a bunch of 300+ lb goliath groupers and some big Tarpon but this is my biggest catch to date. 12'6 gator about 900 lbs

That's little. I guided a group of people in the Mississippi delta to a 13'9" 1143 pound monster. It is mounted and placed on the hood of a truck at the bass pro shop in pearl,ms

That's awesome, haven't caught a monster like that yet. What did you use? I caught mine in FL in Lake Okeechobee with a treble hook and a bang stick
You kept it?
That was my first thought. Bad form.
i dont really care for deep sea fishing.
i'm more of a bayou type fishing guy out of Dulac Louisiana
so, some large redfish are my biggest so mine dont really make it on this list

Yeah Im the same way. Ive gotten into kayak fishing recently. Its pretty cool and a lot cheaper than filling a boat up.
Bull Shark. We cut the line but it was 6 to 7 feet.
I fought a 100+lb/6+foot sturgeon in the Detroit River for 3.5hours while walleye fishing two years ago. I wanted to cut the damn line but my buddy was bound and determined to see this thing through.
Biggest was the same as aumajorpain, a 6 foot Bull. We also cut the line.
My Dad and his buddies actually caught and landed an 11 foot Tiger shark in the late 70's about a mile off of Dauphin Island. I have never seen anything that large in person.
Speckled Trout - 5.5lbs
Redfish - 44 inches (No scale, released it)
King - 40ish
Amberjack - 40ish
Largemouth - 10lbs 13oz
60 lb cobia on labor day weekend
Yes, in the states the fishing team and boat on which I fish practices catch and release on all billfish. However, this was a charter in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, and the captain of the boat indicated we were going to harvest the fish. This was not my decision. Marlin are eaten in some parts of the world.
Treble hook deep sea rod and a .40 cal pistol
In Florida you can't use a firearm, no baiting on lines and no hunting during the day either. We either use a snatch hook, harpoon or cross bow then bust em with a 357 bang stick
I know this may sound stupid but what is a bang stick?
Its basically a pole with a power head on the end. You can typically get them in a 44 or 357. You hold the end of the pole and then drive it into the gator's skull and the power head then fires the bullet. It's not easy to catch the big boys like this. That 13'9 one you got would be the all time record in FL I think.
Won Poco with this fish in 10'. Blue Marlin that weighed in at 465. It was a hell of an experience!
