    Classic once-in-a-lifetime type of fish. Nice to see such a beauty being handled and held in the appropriate manner. Very nice photos.
    Well done on this great catch.

    Lovely fish. But please don't allow your clients to hold fish on or near the belly area. That will almost certainly damage their internal organs.
