121-Pound Mustache Grouper
Charles-Antoine Roucayrol captured what was then recorded as the heaviest grouper ever caught. It was a moustache grouper that weighed 121 lbs and 4 ounces. The catch happened along the waters of the Deroches Islands off the shores of Seychelles. This happened on January the first of 1998. Roucayrol used a kita lure to bring in the huge fish. The photo shows him in very happy state with his prized catch. What a way to celebrate New Year’s!
