I caught this fish and don't know why the term snagged was used, it was caught on a lure and hooked through the mouth. It was a beauty.

I would have to say, That sure looks like it was more than 35 LBS!!!! It looks more like it's 40 to 45 lbs, maybe bigger!

I am the culprit who posted the message! So sorry, Jim! As a person who doesn't fish, I had no idea that I misspoke! Eegads! Humble in Amity, Margie
