MEXICO: giant 135 lb size great amberjack

An huge 135 lb size great amberjack was landed in Mexico off   Cerralvo Island in the Sea of Cortez.

The catch was made after a 25 minute fighting near Cerralvo by a customer of "Tailhunter International Sportfishing", a La Paz-based charter business that trucks clients to a remote beach to fish Cerralvo and offshore waters out of pangas, or large skiffs. 

Unfortunately, no scale was present on the beach.The huge great amberjack was caught by angler Kevin Shiotani was conservatively estimated to weigh at least 135 pounds - 61 kilos. 

The International Game Fish Association (IGFA- lists a 156-pound amberjack caught off Japan in 2010 as the all-tackle world record.
