NH state trooper reels in massive 650-pound tuna
RYE (AP) — A New Hampshire state trooper reeled in a big fish — a massive 650-pound tuna.
Nick Cyr says he was reading a book on his boat with two lines out Tuesday in Rye when the tuna bit on one of the lines. He tells WBZ-TV he could immediately tell it was a big fish, the biggest he's reeled in in a decade of tuna fishing.
Cyr says the fish spun the boat in circles and dragged it for about two miles. After a 90-minute tug-of-war, Cyr managed to reel in the approximately 9-foot fish.
Cyr plans to head back out fishing this week as there is good weather in the local forecast.
