Talk about the catch of a lifetime.
A fisherman in Texas reeled in a massive alligator snapping turtle while he was celebrating Father’s Day.
Justin Broomhall, 25, of Longview, Texas was fishing for catfish at Lake Cherokee that Sunday evening, around 7:30 p.m., with his 3-year-old son Lakestine, his dad Michael Broomhall, Sr., and his fiancé’s dad, James Elliott.
Broomhall told Fox News Digital that, at first, the catfish seemed to be biting.
“All of a sudden, they just vanished,” Broomhall said.
Broomhall, who’s been fishing since he was 4 or 5 years old, said he then noticed a trail of bubbles moving across the water.
