A record-breaking marlin was caught by a group of Ocean City Fishermen.

The four men snagged the 914 pound blue marlin to win the Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament in North Carolina.

The 'Top Dog' crew broke the previous record of an 831 pound catch back in 2000.

To reel in this huge marlin, the crews says it took more than five hours and an additional 90 minutes to bring the 15-foot fish into their boat.

They received more than $793,000 for bringing the marlin back to the dock.
