US: caught a state record 126 lb amberjack in Mississippi

Angler Don Wheeler was fishing in the Gulf of Mexico near Biloxi the past month when he hooked, fought and landed a 126 lb amberjack

This huge fish will beat the current Mississippi state record by just more than 1 pound.

Don hooked the fish in around 180 feet of water, and then fought the fish for only 30 minutes before bringing it into the boat.

The crew put the fish on ice for the trip back to the marina where a representative from the "Mississippi Department of Natural Resource"s documented
Don  and the boat crew weighed the fish at around 140 pounds but simply lost some of its weight during the nearly 7 hour boat ride.
