re: What is the largest fish you ever caught?
Haven't fished saltwater much but caught some kind of orange fish in the grouper family down in Cancun that weighed like 22lbs.
freshwater was a 11.3 bass
and a 12.5 channel cat.

nothing world record shattering by any means.

I had a brief fight with a potential share a lunker (13+) on lake fork one time but she broke my stuff down pretty good and won the fight. She was a freakin whale.

re: What is the largest fish you ever caught?
For several years after Charlie passed, we fished with Capt. Dave Harralson. The "High Tech Redneck" once featured in La. Sportsman. I heard a long time ago he got in a lot of trouble over letting some guys fish over the limit and selling.

When I was at LSU, a bunch of us in the Forestry club went out for a day on Charlie's boat. He was a mean ole cuss. a guy lost a big amberjack and Charlie was unmerciful!. Good guy over all, though.
I talked to him years later just before he passed.

85# Yellowfin, but a 35# Jack on redfish tackle gave me the longest fight of my life @ almost 25 minutes.

It was a yellow fin. Didn't weight it. Over 40, less than 70.

re: What is the largest fish you ever caught?
To this day, it's still the 60 or so lb. gar I caught about 20 years ago digging a crawfish crankbait into teh sandy banks of a local pond, now dead from construction runoff. Other than that, I caught a 47 lb. striper in the Chesapeake about 12 years ago.

I'm a bass fisherman, so I really stick mainly to fresh water. The fishing is a lot easier offshore, but the sunburn, gas money and general tossing and turning is just a pain in the arse to me.

Caught a yellowfin that was about 80lbs trolling out of Venice. We were trolling for Mahi but ended up getting hooked on a yellowfin.

Not sure how much they weighed, some of them had to be well over 50lbs but used to snag 3-4 foot spoonbills at a certain lock and dam.
