Norwegian Atlantic halibut
A 513-pound Atlantic halibut catch reported late last week out of Norway might have smashed the all-tackle world record for the species — 418 pounds, 13 ounces (also caught in Norway).
German angler Marco Liebenow told Mail Online that he fought the 9-foot fish for an hour and a half. When the fish came boatside, it was way too big to haul aboard their 19-foot boat, so he and three friends towed it to shore.
Liebenow told Mail Online that he has submitted the paperwork to the International Game Fish Association and is awaiting a response.
