DALAWARE: caught 56.6 lb state dorado record
The past week an huge 56.9 pound dorado (mahi mahi) has set a new Delaware state record in Delaware .
Sea nagler William Emmert hooked the huge predator fish while trolling an artificial ballyhoo rig and blue and white Ilander in about 380 feet of water.
He landed the fish on the deck of fishing boat "Elizabeth Jane", which is captained by Jason King.
Capt. Jason targeted the tip of the Baltimore Canyon for this record-setting fishing trip, which also yielded several smaller dorado and a 102 pound mako shark.
The catch bested the previous state record by nearly 4 pounds, which had stood since August 2003
