What a catch! Giant tuna caught off the Welsh coast

stream_img-1Two Welsh fisherman got more than they bargained for after catching giant tuna that are thought to be worth over £75,000.

Anglers Chris Bett and Michael Steer had been fishing off the Welsh coast when the monster fish took the bait.

It was after a four-hour struggle when 50-year-old Chris Bett managed to wrangle in the 500lbs Bluefin Tuna.

Shortly afterwards, fellow angler Michael, pulled in a 300lbs tuna.

The anglers say it took three very strong men to lift the creature into the boat.

The pair had just returned from an unsuccessful fishing trip to Madeira so were making up for their losses.
