    Default another 55lb king

    This king looked like a 58-62lb king to me, but when we got to the dock people were telling us it was 65-70lbs! It weighed in at 55.6lbs.

    My boy Greg is heading down tonight to fish with you Jeff. If he catches a 55lb hog i will never hear the end of it. Can you make sure you knock it off the line when you go to net?

    Very nice fish. Ancient proverb says a fish has a right to grow 50% with each telling of the story
