The singer/songwriter/surfer, 66, caught a very large tuna in the ocean waters off Nantucket while enjoying a day off between Jones Beach concerts in the New York area. It weighed in at 350 pounds and was 74 inches long.

That’s one big fish, Jimmy!

And no, his publicist assures USA TODAY, it’s not a stunt for his upcoming Broadway musical, Big Fish. But it sure could be.

In fact, Jimmy’s rep tells USA TODAY that he was surprised by the catch, which took him about an hour to reel in.
