A New Jersey firefighter and police sergeant caught a 236.5-pound bigeye tuna during the White Marlin Open fishing tournament in Ocean City, Maryland.

Whoa! That's a big fish!

Police Sergeant Brian Suschke and firefighter Rich Kosztyu from Trenton say catching the fish took about an hour. Since the fish was so large, Suschke needed to help Kosztyu bring the fish onboard.

Originally the payout was going to be $400,000, but NJ.com reports they ended up earning $767,091 for their trouble.

This giant catch is a record in the White Marlin Open's tuna category for both weight and payout according to NJ.com.

How did the group celebrate their win?

With a steak dinner, haha.
