Norwegian Man Snags Eye-Catching Fish


A young man fishing off the coast of Norway reeling in a rather jaw-dropping catch in the form of a fish sporting enormous eyes. Oscar Lundahl reportedly snagged the odd creature during a recent deep-sea fishing trip near the Norwegian island of Andoya. Although the aim of the outing was to catch some halibut, a different denizen of the deep wound up being the talk of the trip.

According to Lundahl, he had four hooks on one line that was submerged a whopping 2,600 feet with some mackerel attached as bait. When he suddenly "felt something quite big" tug on the line, the fisherman began furiously reeling in the catch in a fight that lasted an astounding 30 minutes as he pulled what he thought would be a halibut to the surface of the water.
