222-Pound, 7-Foot Halibut Caught off Norway Coast; Pictures to Prove It [VIDEO]

Angler Erik Axner caught and released a 7-foot halibut off Norway’s Lofoten Islands. In order to prove it before release, he jumped in the water to take pictures with it.

If you’re going to release the biggest fish you ever caught, you better get some pictures!

Fisherman Erik Axner brought a monster flatfish to the boat off the Norwegian coast with the idea to release it after the fight.

You won’t believe the size of this thing until you see the pictures:

When you hook into a seven-foot halibut you better not go home empty-handed.

These anglers made sure to get the proof before letting the big one “get away.”

A fish story isn’t a fish story unless you can back it up. There’s no doubting the size of that monster, and the best part is: it’s still in the ocean, swimming.
