What a whopper! Angler catches monster halibut weighing the same as a 16-year-old boy

The father-of-one, of St Mary’s Bay, in Kent, said: “I have never felt anything like that in my life.

“The battle lasted 35 minutes, I had cramp in my arm and my back was spasming.

“Thankfully there was no long-term damage, but I was really sore.

“It was just such a slow battle, after it took I picked up the rod and it ran as soon as I felt the pressure.

“It just went to the horizon and took 100 to 150 metres of line on the first run.
