I really never saw any fish. My neighbor at the cottage came over to see what we had caught. Said he had been to the dock and that the Midnight Sun charter boat had caught a 9 lb spanish. Thought I would post it on here to see if it was true. Aces Up caught a 6 lber last year and it was a whopper. Can't imagine a 9 lber. Not sure what the state or world record is . Thanks for your reply.
