"Larry Pentel had made a call on the radio that he was heading in and we should all think about getting our boats on the shore," Provow said in an email to The Sun.

"I had everyone drop their lines one more time, and SueEllen got hooked up on a nice snapper and was fighting it in fine style when all of a sudden, something grabbed the fish she was reeling in. It swam so quickly I didn't have time to get everyone else to reel up their lines," he said. "I had to just take off and follow this fish as she was rapidly running out of line."

"It was hard," SueEllen said. "The wahoo was pulling us all over.”

Her Mom was holding on to the pole at one point, while her brother helped to reel.

"We chased it for about 10 minutes," she said.

Finally they got it to the boat.

"My arms were all red … I was tired," SueEllen said.
