USA: Alabama state record for black grouper
This huge 106 pound, 3,2 ounce black grouper is the new Alabama record, but it also might be a new International Game Fish Association (www.igfa.org) line class record too. Angler Mark Possien was fishing out of Orange Beach in Alabama on the boat "Sea Mixe"r when he caught the monster black grouper fishing over some wrecks. The biog grouper crushes the previous best record, which was set at just less than 68 pounds. And, it could also best the I.G.F.A. 80 pound class record; the previous 80 pound test line record was only 59 pounds.
