By a WoMan, Carolyn Brown, 63 lbs 0 oz. Off Corolla Light, NC. By all accounts, she is an expert angler.

Capt. Badfinger & myself had the pleasure of fishing with her last week in Morehead City NC. However, we were just lucky to get out for a few hours due to the weather & couldn't buy a hit.

She is the top female angler in Virginia!

She was dieing to get in the chair to fight a Giant Bluefin. Hell, even I wasn't sure about battling one of those Buggers on a 130!

Carolyn is very well known fisherman, CCA VA and former moderator on another VA website. She is a schoolteacher who got seriouly into fishing with her son (my kind of gal!)

I met her once at Rudee Inlet, as I used to live there before moving to Philly.

I am not surprised the record broken, but am surprised it was so late in their season, on oceanfront down by Corolla NC light. It's been a tough, cold winter even there for the ocean fishery!

Anyway, did not want anyone to mistake her for a "one weekend out with the boyfriend fisherman"

Previous VA record was around 61 lbs in Ches. Bay by a Mr. Muse.

Yes, I made the point she is an expert angler. I didn't want anyone to think she "stumbled" on this fish. She is good friends with Juggernaut(Larry Holmes) who is registered and stops by on this board from time to time. He is an expert angler in his own right.

Great fish...but I wonder how many fish of that size fall to the nets down in Va. and N.C. (including the ones that never get a chance to get that big !!). It's a shame what the netters get away with down there !

Someone help, But, isn't it where you caught the fish. Not where you bring it to scales. That Fish was caught in N.C. therefore it should be a tie 60 pounds 1972. Katherine Willis. Am I wrong about this.

Blood Stains,

The port of departure and return is the state where the fish is recorded. for example, if there was no EEZ and the fish was caught 25 miles off NC, it couldn't be a NC record because that ain't NC waters.
