Willy B landed this monster on 5/21 near the inlet using power bait. It was 30 inches and about 9 lbs. It took Willy a while to bring in the fish and when he was bringing it out of the water to hook came out. Willy jumped in, gave his prize a bear hug and pulll it out of the water. Nice catch Willy!

I doubted too, then I used his right hand (mine is 8" from bottom of palm to middle finger) to estimate the size- 30" is plausable= NICE fish man, and way to commit, jumping in.

Very nice fish!

I'm sure that what confused that other guy was, he was expecting "everyone" to be holding the fish out, straight armed, toward the camera. Its refreshing to see someone who is comfortable holding the fish next to his body!

One heck of a fish! Nice! Looks like a cutbow.
