The Boston Globe had a tidbit about the massive lunker back when it happened that explains some of the story behind the record.According to Hairball Charters captain Eric Stapelfeld - who took this picture and helped Warren snag the fish - the state record for a mahi-mahi (was) 47 pounds.

FOXBORO, Mass. — Donte Stallworth is back in New England. But he’s not the only veteran with a chance to fill the Patriots’ void at wide receiver. When Julian Edelman went down with a broken foot during Sunday’s win in Miami, Stallworth — who had worked out for the Patriots just a week earlier — was brought in as his replacement.  But the veteran receiver may need some...
