Possible New IGFA record Blueline Tile Caught,fillet,and eaten on the Lowrider...ouch

We had the Kratter Charter out for an overnight canyon trip on 7/30-7/31. We put the lines in short of the canyon and came tight on our 1st and only 50lb YFt. Before we set up for the night the charter wanted to drop for Tiles so we found a spot and our 1st drop produced a 23lb Blueline Tile. We ended up on the drift and went 1for 3 on swords . The morning troll was slow so we poked around some more for tiles and put 2 more Bluelines in the box an 18lber and a 14lber, which at the time I didn't think much of... Before cutting the fish Mark made George weigh the tiles on our hand scale and they went home. Well today I find out from Capt Arthur we had just cut up a potential IGFA world record... and some very respectable Bluelines..The current record holder can breath easier now but I have the Numbers,and who knows if we caught Mama...OUCH!!!
