Wichman was fishing about 10 miles southwest of Port Allen on the island of Kauai on Friday morning when he hooked the Ahi tuna. Coast Guard Lt. Jessica Mickelson tells Hawaii News Now
that Wichman was able to use his cellphone to call his family for help.
A Coast Guard helicopter was dispatched to rescue Wichman. Friends arrived on another boat and were able to right Wichman's boat, which they discovered was still attached to the tuna. They towed it — and the fish — back to port.
