I thought this was a protected species, so you might have been in violation of the law if you had been in possession of this monster? However, I did not see any reference to this on the DNR web site. I did not look very hard. I would suspect this is a federal law though, so the state site might not mention this.
15 years ago, especially when snagging was legal, they used to litter the tailwater banks below Guntersville dam. However, I rarely see or hear anything about these creatures nowadays. Regardless, sounds like you had an incredible day for freshwater fishing!
