'Catch of a lifetime': 'monster' 500lb tuna caught off coast of Wales

Post by Guest on Sat Sep 02, 2017 11:50 am

Afisherman landed a record breaking monster catch when he reeled in a 500lb tuna. Sea charter skipper Andrew Alsop, 48, fought with the fish for more than two hours before pulling it aboard with the help of five crew members. The whopping 36-stone blue fin tuna weighs three times as much as captain Mr Alsop and is believed to be the biggest ever caught in Wales. In a Jaws-like battle the giant fish dragged his boat for more than two-and-a-half miles after it was hooked. Mr Alsop finally landed the huge 7ft 7in long catch 45 miles off the West Wales coast in the Celtic Deep area of the Irish Sea.





What is thought to be one of the biggest fish ever landed from the sea in Wales was caught in Pembrokeshire waters, Wales, UK CREDIT: GAVIN DAVIES/ATHENA PICTURES



Mr Alsop, skipper of the White Water craft, was cheered on by his crew and his charter passengers as he wrestled with the 504-pound tuna.

Pan-fried a couple of minutes on either side, seasoned with pepper, lemon and ground coriander, cooked so that's it's still quite raw in the middle...that's how I used to take my tuna.

Apply can opener, drain all the oil/water, transfer to bowl and mix with mayonnaise..ground pepper, butter lettuce, on sourdough bread, crack open can of beer, turn TV to football game...that's how I take my tuna.

I'm sure the Tuna appreciates your treatment of it, can't really "catch and return" though is it?

It's not "my" treatment. It's Star Kist Tuna's. This is what tuna looks like in my house...

If you chucked some red onion in that I'd join you.

Yum...lov red onion. Also, could make it with wasabi mayonnaise for a little kick. Clears the sinuses. Laughing
