By Paul Johnson

Kauai, Hawaii (CNN) - One man's fight with a 230 pound Ahi in Hawaii nearly cost him his life.
The large fish was so big it capsized fisherman Anthony Wichman's 14 foot boat.
Wichman was initially caught in the line and dragged under water.
He was able to free himself and call his wife... Who then called the coast guard.
After his rescue friends of Wichman came to retrieve the boat and noticed the fish was still on the line!
They reeled it in and towed it back to shore along with the boat.
That is actually Wichman's friends pictured.
