New Record Amberjack? If It Hadn't Been Made Into Tacos, We Might Know for Sure

By CJ Lotz

A fisherman battled this giant amberjack for 25 minutes in the Sea of Cortez last week before he finally hauled it in. He and the boat's crew then delivered it to a remote beach in Baja, California where they marveled at its size, guessing it was at least 135 pounds...and then chopped it up and grilled it for fish tacos. It never touched a scale.
