(as translated from Spanish) Went fishing with my husband to Bajo de Patillas, the day was gorgeous and perfect to look for the world record that I wanted so much. in the same spot before I had taken a few dog snappers but they were just short of the 10 pound mark. Ready that day I went to the rock I know hold dog snappers, when I get there, there are 2 of them , relax on the surface , do my breathings and go down, its 25 feet deep, make a not too long aspetto, dog snappers comes and take my shot right away and the shaft goes all the way. I go to the surface all exited since I know its a big one and for sure bigger than 10 pounds, by the size of it I knew it was my WR. My husband happy for my capture clap with my hands and he goes looking for the other one. With the snapper on my hands I place it on the fish holder and when I get to shore I was even more sure it was big enough 10+ to submit it as my WR."
