the cool story behind this fish is that while my Dad was initially fighting this fish,
a boat waked us and he fell down and cut a large gash in his for arm, he did not drop the rod. anyways both the guide and i rushed to help him him up, he said, get the fish first, get the rod! so I did! the fish was still on, the guide gave him some
first aid (the gash was 1" by 3" open wound that was bleeding hard) once the bleeding was stopped, he grabbed the rod back and landed that fish! not bad for 72!
