It"s impossible to predict what kind of ocean creature you"ll catch. You might catch a blue marlin one time and a giant squid the next. For millennia fishermen have told stories about giant carps, huge whales that could cause tsunamis, and blood-thirsty sharks 50 feet long. Folklore and myths tend to be exaggerated. However, nowadays anyone can snap a photo of their catch and it becomes apparent that some of these legendary sea-dwellers might actually exist.
These are the ten largest fish ever caught by fishermen.
1. The largest lobster
In 1977, Nova Scotia was home to the world"s largest lobster. This crustacean colossus weighed in at over 44 pounds.
