S.C. I agree anything over 15 min. is probably quite a fish. I am going to take some mental notes this summer about the length of the fight, although we get some that are big, over 25, that come right in. i got 2 over 30 the last summer that might have been about 15 min fights. Seemed very short for the fishs' size.
W.G. -- the thought of that reel grating on sand just makes me cringe... that is a beautiful fish
