Daulton Pearson- Yellowmouth Grouper- 11.32 lbs
Going down on a dive in 66ft with an estimated 20lb black grouper as my target when I saw the Yellowmouth out of the corner of my eye. Made a quick (and easy) decision to go for this fish instead. Hit him with a solid holding shot and came up with it in the same dive. .08 shy of the current world record. Maybe next time.
