This Costa Rican catch is one for the books.

"This kind of snapper is called Rockero snapper here in Costa Rica," said Pablo Hein, of Sea Kayak Adventures, who sent in this amazing catch. "This is the biggest of this kind that I've caught. Normally i catch them around 10 to 15 pounds, but this one was around 25 to 30 pounds and was released."

Oh, did we mention that Hein caught this monster on a handline? "Fresh bait, on a hand-line, TICOSTYLE," he said. For more information about Sea Kayak Adventures, or kayak fishing in Costa Rica, check out their website, pescatica.com.
