10-year-old P.E.I. boy lands 500-pound tuna
Could be world record for child tuna fisherman
A young P.E.I. fisherman is looking for confirmation he may have hooked a new world record for the largest tuna caught by someone aged 10 and under.
His father says that qualifies as a new record for largest tuna landed using the stand-up technique by a child 10 and under, but it still has to be confirmed.
Koen Norton said he has been practising his technique all summer.
"When he stops pulling me to rest, I just reel it to him so he can't stop and get a rest."
Koen said he fought for an hour to land the tuna, which weighed more than four times as much as he does. Because he was aiming for the record, he had to do it all on his own without any help.
