Fishermen In Peru Catch GIANT 26ft Manta Ray
This giant manta ray (Manta birostris) weighed in at ~ 1000 kilograms which, for the record, equals 2,204.62 pounds.
I caught a small sting ray, about two feet across, and I've never had a fish fight so hard. I thought I had caught a whale. I was six months pregnant and my husband was afraid I'd hurt myself and offered to help me, but I was determined to bring it onto the boat on my own. I didn't know how to fillet it, so I gave it to our friend. Minutes later, I felt another huge tug on the line and sure enough it was another sting ray, a bit larger that the first one.
An exciting day of fishing, but we went home empty handed.
