I can't believe this!? Everytime I go fishing, somehow I'm outsmarted and just end up feeding fish some tasty worms. This kid at 7 years old reels in this MONSTER?! Read the story from The Northern Advocate:
"Hunter, his father Adam Scott and his grandparents Keith and Christine Scott were out off the Nine Pin Rock at the northern entrance to the Bay of Islands, aboard the family launch Odyssey, when the keen fisherkid felt the unmistakable tug of a biggie.
'We thought it was a little shark but then Granddad shouted out it was a marlin. He saw it jump just after we hooked it,' Hunter said.
And then it was game on - between a 133kg giant and a 23kg nipper.
'First the line was going out ... and then I did a few winds but then it took all of that line back out. I did a few more winds and Dad said it was 30m of line left so I kept winding and you saw this thing coming towards the boat ...' a thrilled Hunter said.
His arms took a beating during the one-and-a-half hour battle, and he was exhausted afterwards.
His dad and grandparents are thrilled the lad was able to haul in the fish by himself."
