Three fishermen caught a 900-pound tuna (actually, 920 pounds) the other day, after more than three hours of battling with the catch.

“It was crazy.  We were on the reel 10, 15 minutes and your arm went.  You could not even move your arm 10, 15 minutes into it.  You’re looking for the guy behind you to take your place,” Michael St. Jean, one of the anglers, told CBS.

“When you watch the tuna shows, they’re two hours into it and they lose the fish.  So I think all of us are like, I do not want to be the guy on the rod when that fish comes off,” said Allan Gourley, another one of the anglers.

The trio are turning into local celebrities after the catch. 

The catch happened off the coast of Cape Cod. 

The 9-foot long Tuna was cleaned, stripped of the bones, and sold for $4,000, according to KJCT-TV
