I know these pictures are terrible, but I thought you guys might be able to
tell what type of a fish this is (was).  Was thinking a goliath grouper,
but not sure.  It washed in from the Gulf, along Padre Island National
Seashore, about 40 miles south of Corpus Christi, Texas.

Many thanks,

Wade this guy is 6'3" tall.  So the fish is bigger than 6'.  Anyway thanks
for the reply.
