An Australian fisherman says his body is sore after pulling in a massive 363-kilogram black marlin in Perth on Wednesday.

The monster fish took three hours to reel in.

The catch would have smashed the previous record in western Australia for the biggest black marlin ever caught (296kg), but after two hours of fighting with the fish, Milne needed help from his friends to keep him upright, which is against official game fishing rules.

The 25-year-old, who at 72kg weighs just one-fifth of the marlin, said wrestling with the fish was the most painful experience of his life.

The largest-ever marlin catch in Western Australia was a 368.20kg blue marlin.
