Retired Policeman Catches Record Breaking Halibut in Norway

A retired policeman landed this huge halibut fish weighing a whopping 540 pounds to claim a world record. Super-fit Reinhard Wuhrmann, 62, fought with the monster for three hours before he and three fishermen colleagues finally netted it.

The super flat fish was so big that at one point German Reinhard's rod snapped in two. The men were only able to haul it onto their boat after tying a rope around it when it came alongside. The 8ft 3ins Atlantic halibut smashed the previous world record by an impressive 58lbs.
