Not natural and was very fresh. The gulls hadn't got to it yet. They are getting them at the '100 Square' and some reports have them 3 miles off. This may have been lost at the boat as there is what looks like a gaff hole in the lower jaw under the eye. Not a spot a hook would be unless it was foul hooked. Over 100 incher, worth BIG money. I used to carry a permit, but nothing ever this large ever came to the boat.Have to wonder if died of natural causes or was tossed back when a larger one was caught?
