record long nose emporer??

Is this the biggest Long Nose Emporer you have ever seen?

 

Caught it during my recent trip to Exmouth at the back of the Muiron Islands.

 

We measured it at just over 90cm and an estimated weight of 11kg.

of brent davey holdng up a horse of a long nose, from (quite) a few years ago. it looked much bigger than your one, but yours is still a good specimen.

 

they do get noticeably bigger than standard spanglies though, but then again, i have seen and caught spanglies up to 86cm.
