One fisherman in Alaska recently not only caught was is the largest rockfish ever, but also the oldest.

Henry Liebman caught the 39.08 pound, 42-inch rockfish 900 feet below the surface near Sitka, Alaska. Liebman says he plans to mount the fish, but some are enraged saying that he should've just taken a few pictures and then thrown the fish back to enjoy its old age.
