German Angler Lands 427-Pound Halibut in Norway
By CJ Lotz
A German angler fishing near Norway will go home to a happy spouse. Christian Johannsen's wife told him to come home with fish as he left for his trip. He responded by landing a 427-pound halibut this week.
"Oh she'll get a big piece," he told the newspaper Die Welt.
Johannsen needed the help of two friends in the four-hour figh to reel in the huge fish.
“Every fisher dreams about this, it’s like winning the lottery,” Johannsen said.
This is the second monster fish caught in Norway by a German angler in recent weeks. Remember that pending-world-record cod?
