Sofranko was on his boat between Croton Point and the Tappan Zee Bridge when the fish jerked the line from its reel.

Sofranko, 44, saw the huge splashing creature and he struggled to reel it in.

"I was in shock with how big it was," he said. "When I got it on the boat, it was bouncing around and knocked over the cooler. I started yelling like a little boy like it was the first fish I ever caught."

The 48-inch fish was too heavy for the scale at Croton Bait and Tackle, so it had to be weighed at Jack's Bait and Tackle in City Island where the scale reaches 100 pounds.
