Whale of a tale: Fisherman makes rare catch in Ocean City

OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) - Local news reports say a Maryland fishing party may have made a rare catch-- a 105-pound opah, or moonfish.

Area news outlets report Capt. Austin Ensor and his three crew members set sail Sunday and are believed to have caught the opah off Ocean City.

Maryland's Department of Natural Resources says it couldn't immediately confirm the catch, which would be rare off the East Coast.

Austin Ensor says that they divided the fish among family and friends to eat for dinner.

"It was the best fish I've ever had," said Ensor
