It must be a species of brown i havent seen before?

It didnt have spots on its adipose and its jaw didnt extend well past the eye and no spots on tail?

Looks a lot like pictures of atlantics ive seen but i dunno.

Feel free to prove me wrong. Id like to know forsure which

Dont worry Joe. With 4 or 5 different speices of browns running around you see some major variations. Chances of getting an Alantic this far south is pretty slim. We had 2 browns that were 8 and 9# in the Brown Blast 4 years ago that you would never of thought were the same species. If fact we thought one was a spring king until we got back in the harbor to take pictures and saw the square tail and white mouth. Gained us some bonus points though.

Here's a brown the guy next to me caught off the pier in GH in early May this spring. Long and slender like an atlantic but was the size of a king. It's lighter in color like yours. BTW this thing tipped the scale at 17lbs...in May...and look how skinny it was! Can't imagine what it would have weight in Oct/Nov. The guy quite fishing after he caught it and left to go get it mounted. He had only been there for about 45 minutes too.
