Leading lady on Lady Em
Kathy Eller hauled in a 56.4-pound grouper to take first place in the Extended Voyage Division Thursday afternoon. She was fishing aboard the Lady Em with her husband Capt. Mike Eller. "We thought it was an amberjack," she said, noting the way it pulled. The grouper was just one of several fish on the Lady Em to make the leader board in the Destin Fishing Rodeo. They also weighed in a 29.8-pound king mackerel plus two yellowfin tuna, a 93.4 and a 95.2 pounder.
