Incredible fish, thanks for sharing. The first time I went fishing on a boat in deep water as a kid I was scared if I fell overboard something would eat me. That's the fish in my nightmare!!!!

I can help with this - they use large weight slings that protect the fish and a special tripod. It's the same kind of rig we use in carp fishing

I don't want to be near to that fish. I may fall into its mouth by accident.

Now somebody will have to try to outdo him by catching one bigger on a 5wt.

Think I would have cut the line sold the boat and gear stopped fishing anywhere I could not see the bottom or deeper than 2 feet. That is crazy fish.
