Everyone has been talking about king mackerel that 8-year-old Andrew Quinn landed back in March. The story was first told here on GoFISHn back on March 28, and has been retold throughout the Internet since.
Well, young Mr. Quinn’s record has fallen.
Dennis Borden had always wanted to take his boys deep sea fishing, so they set out for the Gulf Coast for a trip before son Matthew left for a Navy assignment. Matthew got a bit of a sendoff gift from the sea.
“Once we got in cell phone range last Sunday, the captain called the dock to tell them he thought he might have a state record king mackerel aboard and he needed some certified scales,” Dennis Borden said. “From that one phone call, the word spread. When we got to the dock there were over 150 people waiting to see that fish.”
Sounds like a great sendoff. -Brian McClintock
