Donna Pascoe caught 907 pound Pacific bluefin tuna

Donna Pascoe did not know what she had hooked when line began to race from her reel; she only knew that it was something enormous.

“I hooked up at 9:10 a.m. with the reel screaming,” she told Saltwater Sportsman. “The fish never surfaced, so we had no idea what was on the other end. After three hours, the fish surfaced and the skipper yelled, ’Tuna, world record!”

The Pacific bluefin tuna, caught after a four-hour marathon battle during a tournament on February 19, tipped the scale at 907 pounds.

The New Zealand Sport Fishing Council this week stated that it’s the largest fish ever caught by a female angler off New Zealand.  - PeteThomasOutdoors
