The huge fish hanging on the scales at Zeke's Marina on Thursday evening drew appreciative nods from those who knew what they were looking at and amazed gasps from those who didn't, said the men who'd caught the fish.
At 95.2 pounds, Lee Windham's cubera snapper would shatter the Alabama state record of 52 pounds held since 1988 by Grand Bay's Michael Crawley by more than 43 pounds. Officially, however, it never will.
That's because Windham and the other crew members aboard Jeremy Shook's boat left from and returned to Pensacola and only decided to weigh the fish at Zeke's because the marina was closer to the Shook family's house on Perdido Key, just across the Alabama state line in Florida.
