LEWES, Del. (AP) - A Maryland doctor is now a Delaware record holder after reeling in a huge bluefish during a fishing tournament.
    
Dr. Luis Mispireta of Stevensville, Maryland was participating in the Delaware Sport Fishing Tournament Monday over the Del-Jersey-Land Inshore Reef, the largest artificial reef on the Atlantic Coast.
    
While on board the charter vessel Katydid about 26 nautical miles from Lewes, Mispireta caught a black sea bass. As he began to reel it in, a large bluefish suddenly grabbed the sea bass and hooked itself as well.
    
A struggle ensued until the doctor was finally able to bring the 43-inch, 24.8-pound bluefish in. The previous Delaware state record, 21.9 pounds, was held for 35 years.
