While fishing in South Australia, Karen Wright caught a southern bluefin tuna Wednesday that weighed more than 316 pounds - 143 kilos
It took Wright 35 minutes to land the leviathan, which comes close to the current largest southern bluefin tuna on the record books with the IGFA (International Game Fish Association - www.igfa.org)
That record tuna weighed just more than 369 pounds and was harvested near Tathra, Australia back in 2009.
Here in Australia it is absolutely illegal for recreational anglers to sell their catches so Wright distributed the fish among her friends and family. If sold could have made a cool $4,500.

The overall length of this monster size thresher shark was around 20 feet. This is the largest thresher shark he has encountered, and he claims to have caught hundreds of them.
This huge shark was reeled in by a female angler, after a 2 hour battle, from a depth of around 590 feet.
The thresher was not weighed before it was processed for the charter group, but Mark the Shark estimated the weight at between 720 and 750 pounds.
The current world record by International Game Fish Association lists a 767 pound - 347 kg thresher, caught back in late 1983 off New Zealand coasts.
Angler Alex Stevens from "Berserker Rods" joined BlacktipH team on a goliath grouper fishing trip.
Stevens wanted to try to catch a monster goliath grouper in a stand-up harness. He built a custom rod specifically for this trip......with no luck.
