Doctor Gets 385 LB Lemon Shark on Fly
Yahoo News reports that Dr. Martin Arostegui has caught the heaviest fish ever documented on fly tackle. The 385 pound lemon shark was landed on 12 pound tippet.
"He fought the fish for one hour, and at one point the shark opened its jaws and attacked Delph's 29-foot boat.
"He could have eaten half of me or even all of me in one bite," said Arostegui, who stands at 5 feet tall."
