NEW ZEALAND: a world record fishing day

Nathan Adams and his friends were out on his boat in the New Zealand waters when the hauled in two record-sized fish, and several other prize fish.

The first confirmed record is a nearly 790-pound black marlin that set the Muriwai Sport Fishing Club records. But the real prize may be the near 740-pound Pacific bluefin tuna, which may be a new world record.

These weren't the only prize catches on the boat over the 11-day trip.

According to Stuff.Co.Nz, Jessie Wright, 16, caught five marlin, including a 301-pound marlin, which made her national junior striped marlin champion.

Her two older brothers won prizes too. Logan Wright was second in the champion line weight section with a 317.5-pound marlin caught on the same boat.
