A New Zealand fisherman is waiting to hear if he has reeled in a new world record bluefin tuna.
The Pacific bluefin weighed in at more than 738 pounds, and if approved by the International Game Fish Association, it is the largest of its kind ever snapped up on a rod and reel.
But what makes the catch even more of a feat is that Nathan Adams caught it from a 19-foot aluminum boat.
“It was pretty cool because when I first started fishing my dream was to catch a bluefin tuna exactly like that,” said Mr Adams.
He said the fish was “pretty hard” to reel in because the line “was right on the point of the line breaking”.
