An angler aboard the Fortune fishing Salta Verde at Catalina Island just made a catch to remember.
A very rare, deep-water oarfish seems to have been snagged while the crew was fishing 30-feet of water.
The oarfish was about twenty-feet long and they are a sight to behold.
“It was pretty much dead, a passenger snagged it and wound it in”, said Fortune owner/captain Bruce A. Smith.
