Kevin Shiotani and a Mexican crew weren’t thinking record when they landed an amberjack that might have rivaled the 156-pound IGFA world record. No, they were thinking lunch. Lots of lunch.
The fish, conservatively estimated as 135 pounds, was pulled from the Sea of Cortez to a remote Baja California beach and filleted before it anyone considered weighing it.
This has happened numerous times before, and is sure to happen again. Man’s gotta eat.
