Big Ole "Hoo

That's a big 'Hoo! Congratulations...are you going to give us the details of the catch? What company? Who was the angler? The suspense is killing me, as I was out 60 miles south of Venice that same day and the seas and fishing were both great.

Didn't get the whole story, but they were trolling for Kings at some close in rigs. The hoo was not lit up at all and they initially thought they had the world record King until they got it on board. I work for Thompson Engineering out of Mobile and this was the fourth year of our company's little rodeo. Last year the boat I was on caught an African Pompano that was only 3 lbs. off the Alabama record. I'll try to run the guy down who caught it to tell the story.
