    210 lb then 206 lb 5 days later, both from North Island years ago. Back in the day when I did not know better and even sporties could keep large females. We did manage 131, 122, 88, 80 cm last weekend, I do not weight now. Have all pics somewhere?

    This is the chart i use for the releasers

    http://www.iphc.int/publications/bulletins/lenwtmet.pdf

    According to the chart it worked out to 211 lbs. It was pretty obvious from the get go it was a whole different class of fish. It was an easy release on the 14/0 circle hook :)
