CHICAGO (CBS) — An Indiana charter boat captain has quite a fish story to tell.

Tyler Kreighbaum said he thought he was hooked on the bottom of Lake Michigan, or had snagged some debris last Saturday when he pulled in a record-breaking trout.

According to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Kreighbaum was out on the lake with his wife and five clients of his fishing charter out of Michigan City when he caught the trout.

Kreighbaum said he didn’t recognize its significance; he just thought it was a big fish.
