Fishing on any given day is a good day. But angler Tim Trone of Havana FL had a GREAT day when he caught the new Georgia…
The post included several pictures of Trone holding his massive fish. The catch was so large, the man from Florida noted on his social media page that “holding that fish” in his “arms was hell.”
“It took 3 of us to get that fish in that position,” he added. “I only held it for a few seconds. About killed my back.”
Speaking to Fox News later, Trone shared that the monster fish actually didn’t put up that much of a fight.
Trone admitted that he initially thought the beast was only about 50 lbs and it wasn’t until he got it closer to the boat he realized it was the catch of a lifetime.
