Gar-gantuan feat at Lake Corpus Christi » Corpus Christi Caller-Times:
"Even together the two men could not lift the fish. Jim offered a forklift from his garage, which was just the tool they needed to hang the catch for photos and to weigh it.
But their scale's 300-pound capacity was inadequate. The fish measured 8 feet 2 inches. And it bottomed out the scale in resounding fashion.
The actual weight, which was more than a few stones greater than 300 pounds, will never be known."
