A fisherman may have tipped the scales after catching what may be the world’s biggest Opah fish - tipping the scales at more than 12 stone. After a gruelling 30 minute battle with the mighty fish, fisherman, Joe Ludlow, 47, managed to haul the whopper on board. Weighing in at 181 pounds, the mammoth catch managed to outweigh the current record by 18 pounds. But in bizarre twist, two other anglers alongside Joe also managed an unprecedented feat by each catching an Opah on the same day.

"I conceive pictures that represent my deepest and most irrational perceptions. Through this I aspire to show images that transmit the impression of paintings of the past, but are imbued with contemporary, fresh concepts as well as my own personal philosophy.
