A Fishing Tale for the Ages

Rye Middle School student Colin Cornacchia was on board for the “catch of a lifetime” earlier this month when he joined his uncle Brian in Boynton Beach, Fla. Before they could even reel in some live bait, the two were dueling with a mammoth wahoo fish in the shallows of the Boynton Inlet. Brian Cornacchia said his nephew, who loves to fish, had much to do with the epic snare.

“He moved all my rods out of the way, put the harness on for me and lifted the engine as the fish circled the boat over and over,” noted Brian of the action on his 23-foot Mako, dubbed “Montana Cool.”

The wahoo tipped the scales at an incredible 88.1 pounds, which could very well break the record at the West Palm Beach Fishing Club in the 50-general tackle category. The results are pending.

“It felt really amazing,” said Colin. “I haven’t caught a fish like that in my whole life.”

Not many have, Colin, not many have.
