USA: possible IGFA record for black grouper

This 105-pound black grouper, caught by Matt Snyder in the Gulf of Mexico, might be the new world record for the species caught on 50-pound-test line.
He's not edging anybody out, he'd be smashing the existing record, which is just 18 pounds. The IGFA posted this photo on their Facebook wall.
Snyder caught the fish on September 16 and is submitting it to the IGFA to achieve his record status. He was drifting a live grunt when he hooked this fish off Florida's Southwest coast, and it took him just 12 minutes to land it. We'll let you know when it becomes official
