One man recently pulled off the fishing accomplishment of a lifetime.
According to the Houston Chronicle, Troy Lancaster caught a bluefin tuna in the Gulf of Mexico that weighed a staggering 876 pounds.
The battle to haul the fish in lasted nine hours, and it’s a record catch for a bluefin tuna out of Texas, according to the same report.
“It was just back and forth for about 7 or 8 of those hours. Then we didn’t feel anymore movement on the line, no more head shakes or tail shakes or anything. So from that point on, about the last hour and a half, we were fighting just dead weight on the fish,” Lancaster explained to the Chronicle.
