This massive fish was caught at night by Al McReynolds off of the
Vermont Avenue jetty in Atlantic City, New Jersey. He was fishing
during a September 21st 1982 Nor'easter storm. It weighed in at
78-1/2 lbs., was 53" long
and its girth was measured at 34 - 1/2".
It took him over 4 hours not the previously
reported hour and 40 minutes to land this
monster. Als previous best to this point
was 39 lbs. Al also caught a 15.9 pound weak
fish immediately before he hooked into his
world record beast
