It took over a quarter of a mile of fishing line for Jason Johnston to reel in the monster fish. It looked like something out of a nightmare indeed. The fishermen will donate the sea creature to a research organization but in the meantime they are having fun taking pictures and showing off their once in a lifetime catch.
