This is not fake news! Ken Fraser truly caught this tuna of a lifetime. He hooked and landed it in under an hour, it took him 45 minutes to reel in this fish. Caught off of the Nova Scotia coast using a mackerel as bait, it still holds the record for largest bluefin ever caught. Ken caught this monster in October of 1979, and it is still one of the largest fish to ever be seen.
