Catch of the Day!
Two Jamaican fisherman were fishing just off Boston Bay when they caught something very unexpected.
Desmond Phillips and Michael Grant fought over two hours with a giant Sunfish estimated to weigh 900 pounds.
After trying to capture it by tying the boat and motor to the shore, they decided they would need to bring it on board.
After some flooding in the boat and even more time, they successfully got the giant fish on board and headed off to Bryans Bay.
Phillips said the fish was so big he thought it was an alien.
Ocean sunfish aren’t common in Jamaican waters, but aren’t dangerous.
They can weigh up to 500 pounds and eat sea jellies and other invertebrates.
