Every fisherman’s dream is to snag the biggest fish in the world. Some massive fish have been caught around the globe over the years, but these three reign supreme as the largest ever reeled in.

#1. The Atlantic Bluefin Tuna — Aulds Cove, Nova Scotia

The Atlantic Bluefin Tuna caught by Ken Fraser has reigned supreme as the biggest fish ever caught since he snagged it on Oct. 26, 1979, in Aulds Cove, Nova Scotia. The fish weighed a staggering 1,496 pounds, and it took him 45 minutes to get the fish out of the water with his rod and reel. You can read more about Fraser’s catch on his website, KenFraser.ca.

#2. Atlantic Blue Marlin — Vitoria, Brazil

It’s no surprise that the deep blue Atlantic is home to some impressive fish. The second largest fish ever caught was a 1,402-pound Atlantic Blue Marlin reeled in by Paulo Amorim on Feb. 29, 1992. The fish was caught off the coast of Vitoria, Brazil, and although it fell just short of the record, it was one of the most impressive catches to date.

#3. Swordfish — Iquique, Chile

The third largest fish ever caught was record-setting at the time it was snagged in 1953. Lou Marron reeled in the 1,182-pound, 179.25-inch-long swordfish on May 7, off the coast of Iquique, Chile. At the time, it was one of the heaviest fish every caught by rod and reel, and it remains that way today. You can catch a glimpse of the award-winning fish at Miami’s International Game Fish Association Fishing Hall of Fame and Museum.
