Angler snags record breaking halibut
The pensioner was on a trip to the Western Fjords of Iceland when he made the catch. It took him 2 hours to wheel in the giant catch and the help of 5 men to winch it on board.
Returning to shore with his prize catch Gunther decided to sell the fish for £2,500 and it is expected to be divided into almost 1000 individual filets.
Speaking in the Daily Mail Gunther said:
“This is the fish I have been fishing for all my life.”
