Angler Gets Record 956-lb. Tuna
TIPPING the scales at 956 pounds, the biggest tuna ever caught with rod and reel was pulled out of Liverpool bay, Nova Scotia, recently by Thomas Howell, Chicago financier.
More than 200 pounds heavier than Zane Grey’s record catch of a few years ago, the giant fish was landed after only a 3-1/2 hour battle. The strain of the line, holding the mouth of the fish open, actually drowned it.
