A group of south Florida fishermen reeled in a rare sawfish over the weekend, capturing the exciting feat on video.
It took Dustin Richter and pals more than two hours to wrangle the 11-foot long, 500-pound creature during a midnight fishing trip on Sunday morning, ABC’s West Palm Beach affiliate WPBF reported.
“Catching a fish like that is like once in a lifetime,” Richter said.
Richter and his friends, from Boynton Beach, Fla., let the sawfish go after bringing it to shore and filming a video.
“It’s just one of those prehistoric-looking animals,” he said. “If you see them you’re lucky to see them and if you catch them you’re even luckier.”
