ALASKA: caught a monster size 405 lb halibut
Alaska waters are full of big halibut and every day is possible to catch a monster size fish.
All this happened recently when angler Michael Clancy fished off Chenega Bay caught an huge 405 pound - 183 kilo halibut.
Back at the dock this huge predator fish was measured in over 7 and a half feet long. It took Clancy and his friends 35 minutes to bring the large flatfish to boatside.
The largest halibut ever caught in all the world was a 515 pound - 233 kilo off the coast of North Norway in Altlantic Ocean.
On the Pacific side a 459 pound - 203 kilo is written the record books as the largest halibut ever caught.
