Or swamp beast, or marsh monster, or whatever… This thing was huge! I could have ridden it away from the boat. Baring one tarpon (which doesn’t really count) this was the biggest fish I have ever landed. With a lot of help from Will Benson of worldangling.com fame we subdued this 51 pound black drum on a ten weight and one of Will’s magic flies. I couldn’t believe it…

Not that I’m one to chase big fish on a regular basis, but I’m curious what was your biggest fish ever, and what were the circumstances?
