Tuna bluefish World`s Record: 907 pounds caught by Donna Pascoe, a New Zealand angler .


In February 2014 , Donna Pascoe 56, a New Zealand angler caught a 907 pounds Tuna bluefish, maybe the largest caught with rod and reel in the Pacific.

She was on her bota "Gladiator" in Feb 19. when she hooked the tuna. " I hooked up at 9: 10 a.m" After 3 hours the fish surfaced and the skipper yelled: "Tuna, world record"  

Even four men couldn’t pull the giant fish on board.
“Four men could not pull it onto the boat, so had to be assisted by the boat anchor winch and even then it took half an hour to bring on board,” Pascoe said in a Facebook post describing the record catch.
Pascoe says her stamina during the fish’s four-hour fight didn’t wane.
"Once we had the fish, I was so excited that my arms and legs could have fallen off and I wouldn't have noticed," she says. "I think adrenalin is a great thing and it certainly kept me going.
She sent the fish’s measurements to the International Game Fish Association to recognize her as the new world record holder for a pacific bluefin tuna catch, and she's still waiting for the official word. But in the meantime, the New Zealand Sport Fishing Council announced this week it’s the largest fish ever caught by a female angler off New Zealand.
"The record is currently held by Kevin Baker, who caught a 777-pound tuna in Greymouth, New Zealand, last September. Pascoe’s catch took four hours to reel in.
