A lone angler, far offshore. A giant fish, bigger than anything he'd ever hooked. And sharks. No, this isn’t the setting for "The Old Man and the Sea." It's the all-too-real situation 61-year-old Andrew Card found himself in earlier this month when, fishing alone some 30 miles off the coast of Bermuda, Card hooked an incredible 1,000 pound bluefin tuna, only to see his catch ravaged by sharks before he could boat it.
When Card managed to finally get the giant fish in the boat, it still weighed a scale-bottoming 987 pounds. The massive fish beat the old Bermuda record of 782 lbs., which happened to be caught by...Andrew Card.
