Catch of a lifetime

Mitchell High School freshman Jackson Foxx, right, and his dad, Tim, left, traveled to Gloucester, Massachusetts, over the Fourth of July holiday to fish for Atlantic bluefin tuna. Jackson, 14, caught this 102-inch long, 620 pound tuna Thursday, July 4, on a rod a reel. It took Jackson nearly four hours to reel in the fish, which, at one point, took his line more than a mile from the boat. The fish was eventually sold to be used for sushi. (SUBMITTED PHOTO)
