Red Snapper

To fishing and how about this for an indication that it's still good in our area waters. That's Erik Tomlinson on the left, he speared this snapper that weighed in at 82.8 pounds. At first they thought they might have a record black snapper, but then realized it's a cubera snapper. If it's Pacific cubera, and Erik says indications are, it is....they still have a world record, the current one is 78 pounds. If it's just a cubera snapper, the record on that is 124 plus, so Erik would be short of that. No matter what it's a whopper of a fish, and again indicative of the good fishing that still exists in regional waters!
