Once hooked, the giant quickly ripped through 80m (about 262 feet in the real world) of 30-pound braided line before crashing across the lake surface. "When I heard it crash, I knew it was a big fish," Harrold detailed to the Australian media before throwing out his "barra" and "snodger" comment. Harrold's monster weighed an incredible 44.6kg (about 98 pounds) and measured 135cm (almost 4 ½ feet). Its girth was an astounding 107cm (about 3 ½ feet). This beat the previous barramundi record taken in 1999 from Lake Tinaroo, Queensland by almost 7kg (I'm through converting numbers).
