"We went over to check out its size. In the water, she looked mighty big, possibly a grander. The crew on Barco wasn't able to get her in through the transom door — she was too big. The door on my Black Watch is much wider, and after a lot of mucking around, we got their blue on board my boat. At the weigh station, she registered 892 pounds," McCubbin recalls. The angler, Joel Purcell, along with Barco's owner, Vince Wregg, and his two sons, Leon and Jeffrey, told McCubbin they wanted to tag and release the blue, but they couldn't revive her.
