Salt water fish are huge. I mean look at Moby Dick for instance. I guess it is because they have so much room to grow in perhaps. Or maybe everything tastes better with a little salt. mRegardless the stories are there. Here is a list of the ones that didn't get away to achieve New Hampshire State records.

New Hampshire State of Mine

The Price to Pay for the Highest Quality of Life is Far Less in New Hampshire
 

Living the good life in New Hampshire cost far less than you would expect.

Having lived in NYC, East Haddam in Connecticut for weekends, and the North End of Boston I had a different opinion of New Hampshire long before ever stepping foot in the State. People I knew would call it "Cow Hampshire" or "New Hampster".
 
After all the population on NH was a fraction of what is in CT, MA or NY, and seemed to be in the boonies -- just so far north. However, it didn’t take long before realizing it was nothing less than picturesque and beautiful with over 1300 lakes, Lake Winnipesaukee, a pristine 44,000 acre lake in the Lakes Region made famous by the film “On Golden Pond” staring Katheryn Hepburn with Jane and Henry Fonda written by local talent Ernest Thompson. The “Big Lake” is surrounded by the majestic White Mountains
