The story about a big fish

Sumer time on the sea

Two years ago I was to on the sea to catch some pollocks for dinner. Suddenly there was something really heavy on the line. When tis happens you have only one thing to do, don't hold back the line let the fish run out, if not you will loose the fish. After one and a half hour with a little bit in and out with the line the fish appears in the surface, an huge halibut. I always have a hook on a stick in the boat for to pick bigger fishes from the sea. I tried to use this two times, impossible, the fish was to big and heavy, the fish splashed a lot and pulled the line and swam down into the depths again.
What to do now, drag the fish to the shore. Started the engine and slowly dragged the fish towards the shore, again impossible, when the fish came in on shallow water it runs out on the sea again more line out and followed the fish out again. What to do now, the fish is to big for the boat , can not drag it alive on the shore. One last opportunity, kill the fish first. After a while I got the fish to the surface again, took a big knife put the arm down in the water and I managed to stick the fish in an important place to make it bleed. A last run out with the bleeding fish, then I knew the fish was mine. The weight? Had to cut the fish into pieces to weigh it, did not have large enough weight. The weight was just over fifty kilos.

That is a real huge fish. I can imagine in the past it was a great for many families to share it between, 50 kg, unbelievable!

Beautiful summer time, it is difficult to imagine how warm and nice in North :)

Very exciting story! You were very brave and can finally manage to stick the big fish to make it bleed by the big knife.

Your first photo of the clouds and the reflection is also my favorite. Really wonderful! Great capture! ;)

Thank's very much @tangmo for comment. Yes I do what I can to bring my catches safe in the boat.
