A Kansas man caught a massive fish on his first fishing trip in Alaska.

Dirk Whitsitt caught a 231 pound Halibut in Cook Inlet of Homer, Alaska. Whitsitt fought the fish for 45 minutes before having to finally use a .38 special to subdue the massive fish.

Whitsitt was also given the chance to release the fish for a $250 voucher for another day of fishing, but he decided to keep the trophy fish.
