Captain Maureen, my wife's biggest striper on a bluebird day. Released fish all morning this size. This one we couldn't revive and is on our wall. Wife's 10.37# fluke aboard Cibigma's current Parker 2520.
My biggest was this 333 lb blue marlin in the outer banks a few years back. I was lucky enough to get one good jump after setting the hook and she got tail wrapped after that first jump. Was one hell of a fight pulling her in backwards. Nearly severed the tail with the line and she was basically dead (so was I!) by the time I got her to the boat unfortunately.
