Back from Mexico - that's a big fish!

Here is the head of the fish I caught in Mexico. It’s a Roosterfish. We had a great time hanging out and pretty much lounging, but on Tuesday we went fishing and I taught the locals a thing or two. This fish is 63" long and 96lbs. The world record Roosterfish is 66" long and 114lbs. The fish my brother-in-law caught was no slacker either. We hooked into these fish within a few seconds of each other, and his fish was 54" long and 83lbs. In the picture below, we’re a little hunched over because that is really heavy, and slippery.
