Just three weeks after a Cambridge man broke a decades-old record for the largest mahi mahi caught in Maryland, an Anne Arundel County woman broke it.

Kristy Frashure of Pasadena was with five other friends fishing off of Poor Man’s Canyon in the Ocean City area when she caught a 74.5-pound fish, according to the Department of Natural Resources.

Frashure said it took “nearly 20-30 minutes” to reel in the enormous mahi mahi – also knowns as the dolphinfish.

She told the Department of Natural Resources she didn’t know it was a new record – but she knew it was a big fish.

“We were taking bets on how much it weighed,” she said.

The previous record was set by Jeff Wright when he caught a 72.8-pound fish on July 28.
