    We need a bigger boat.

    It took a month to confirm...but Texas Parks and Wildlife are going on record saying, biggest ever, in the entire Gulf of Mexico.

    VICTORIA, TX (KTRK) --
    A Victoria man landed in the record books for what he landed in his boat last month.

    Joey Beaver, 28, caught a 38.75-pound red snapper in the Gulf of Mexico last month. The fish has been verified by the Texas Parks and Wildlife as breaking the record for a red snapper caught in the Gulf, and they awarded him with a certificate confirming that the June 1 catch was 40-inches long.

    Beaver said that he caught the snapper about five miles off shore near Port O'Connor, which is between Corpus Christi and Galveston. ​
