:( sad to see that 1999 was the last year for State Records...

3 years is long enough, don't you agree??

Koz,

Some big mac daddies on that list, 130lb Cobe, 90lb King, and a 17lb 7oz Speck ! They definitely grow'em bigger down there :eek: However, my back yard/VA has you all on the Croaker, Red Drum, Striped Bass, and Weakfish.

F-Squid agreed you like to see FLA action getting a record every year or two, but species and class of fish run through cycles and who knows how many records were broke off at the gaff/net :(

Jighead from the look of it your best shot is at that unrestricted 6lb Ladyfish slingin' Ye Ol'Gotcha :D

Bag a big one, eat a few, and release the rest,

`bucket

I’ll bet the guy who hooked up with that 142lb Amberjack was sore as heck the next day! :D :D

He probably thought he had snagged a navy submarine. That’s a fight I’d like to get the details on.
