Giant Tuna

54-year-old Anthony Wichman caught a hell of a fish off the island of Kauai, Hawaii.

He hooked a 200-pound tuna while fishing off his 14-foot boat!

What was a good fishing story turned into a fight for his life when the powerful fish capsized his small boat. Worst part is, Whichman's leg got caught in the fishing line and he was dragged under the water!!

Oh no! That must've been terrifying!!

Thankfully, he was able to free himself, climb onto his capsized boat and call his wife for help.

The US Coast Guard was dispatched and they sent in a helicopter to rescue him.

Coast Guard Lieutenant Jessica Mickelson said:

"At the end of the day, we couldn't have asked for a better rescue. Mr Wichman was delivered safely to shore with minimal injuries and he and his friends will have quite the indisputable fish tale to tell."

Not only was Wichman saved, but his friends were able to tow his boat in… along with his giant catch!

So he gets to have his fish and eat it too! LOLz! Glad everything work out okay!
