Man lands catch of a lifetime - a 360kg monster stingray

FLORIDA - Charter boat captain and avid angler Mark Quartiano recently caught this monster 14-foot long stingray off the cost of Miami Florida.

The veteran fisherman reeled in the giant 360kg fish on Nov 23, 2013.

The stingray isn't just unusually large -- it also belongs to a primitive, rarely-seen species, making it a veritable dinosaur of the ocean.

He claims to have caught a similar fish once before, but this specimen is much larger.

The fish took some four hours in all to land, and was released afterwards.
