My friend caught this fish while fishing two eels and jigging a 9inch olive/white rat tail lure, the bass grabbed the rat tail and after a prolonged battle the fish picture was taken and released. The fish is well over the length of the world record of 53 inches “not saying it is a world record because its in pounds not inches” the question is would you release a fish of this size???

Yea because they taste like crap. Ate my first sea robin ever this weekend. Damn I was missing out, all these years of throwing them back.


Nice fish BTW


Got that right, I suppose I would keep it if I was someone who needed a pat on the back and some jealous comment at the local tackle shop, or if I had entered a certain fishing magazine, that preaches conservation, kill contest I would weigh it in. Just like he did a picture and boga weight is great, and I can attest to the fact that the bigger fish are not as tasty as the smaller guys. Long, lean and looking to feed. Nice Fish let it get back to its friends!
