Thomas Youngblood of Homer, AK brought in a monster barn-door halibut weighing 354.6 lbs.
Thomas was in awe of catching the big one, saying it was quite an adventure. It took him 20 minutes to bring her in and yes he had a derby ticket!!. The barn-door halibut is worth $40,440. Not bad for a day of fishing!!
