Judging by the number of record fish caught in the past year and a half, it appears Alabama’s saltwater fishing is doing just fine.
Ten records were established in 2014, and five more have been established in 2015 with several months left to fish.
One of the most impressive fish that made the record book was a snowy grouper caught by Tyler Kennedy of Mobile in 2014. That fish weighed 68 pounds, 9 ounces. The world record is 70 pounds, 7 ounces.
