Dennis, who's been record-chasing in the area for 10 years, keeps close tabs on the local monsters--and they're not off the hook just because of his recent catch. "I had a bigger, dark one on two weeks earlier. It dragged us eight hours, then another half hour with a gaff in it, then it tore free. The next day, we saw it back at the pass. There's a big gray one around, too. And a week ago, a new one showed up, and the guys who saw it say it's bigger than any of them--18 or 20 feet. You want your life insurance paid up when you go after that fish."
