Almost made the 30lb club!

I shouldn’t have bled it before weighing.
I was fishing about 100 ft deep outside MB with a nice greenback on 3-way swivel. It was really slow fishing. I got hit once that crushed a mac head but didn’t get hooked. About 9:30, wham! No idea what it was except big. Got it to color and it was my first WSB! Been waiting 5+ years and finally got one! Merry Christmas to all and to all a good fight!
After bleeding it was 29.1 lbs and 44'.

Congrats on the first WSB. I'm still waiting for a large legal sized WSB and it's been over 7 1/2 years. I do say, I do not specifically target them. But I have been fishing close to others and we had the same three way rigs hoping for a nice Yellowtail and they ended up getting a 50lb WSB. So anything is possible. Enjoy those nice dinners it will provide.

If he was a real fisherman he would call it 30+ lbs and leave us guessing

I estimate a fish that size lost about 12lbs of blood, pee, and poop combined. Let's call it 40.

When I got it to the surface, the stomach was turned inside out and sticking a foot out of it's mouth. I didn't think about it then, but when I gutted it the guts were small because the stomach was empty. 40 at least!::I've been wanting to use that little WSB icon for a long time!
