A gigantic fish was recently hauled in by a father and son duo in North Carolina.

According to BroBible, Josiah Van Fleet and his son recently caught a 1,000-pound Bluefin Tuna that measured 114.5 inches. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

That’s about nine and a half feet long! Take a look at this beast below.

When I first saw the pictures of this fish, I thought it had to be fake. I thought there was no way in hell that this was real.

It looks like it’s straight out of a movie. Yet, it’s very much real. According to the @oceans_east Instagram post, the battle to haul it lasted about two and a half hours.

While I usually hate fishing stories, this is the kind of story that should be told all the time. This father and son duo has an all-time great tale from the ocean.

The thing weighs roughly 1,000 pounds! That’s just a mind-boggling number. Imagine wrestling with a 1,000-pound fish.

Props to these two men for the catch of a lifetime!
