Older news on Warsaw Grouper

An aquaintence of ours named KP caught this monster Warsaw Grouper last month on an electric reel in very deep water. Its unofficial weight is something around 100 lbs.

This next photo is not for the weak. It happened last week off our coast. That is around a 10/0 size hook for tuna that was lodged in the foot while they were starting a fishing tournament.

Oh good, it is actually small enough it isn't totally gross to view. Anyhow, it severed through 2 arteries, so it was proper emergency care to keep the hook in. Personally, I would have not let anybody touch it with steel cutters either only because the next thing I would have been screaming for would be pain killers and anesthesia.
