Jeremiah Elliott spends a lot of his time fishing.

Recently, the tackle shop owner was fishing for swordfish with three friends off the North Carolina coast, he told McClatchy News. But when he felt a tug on his line, it was much stronger than the 12-pound fish he expected.

Elliott and his friends pulled in the reel and found a massive creature on the other end.

At first, the group didn’t know what it had caught, Elliott said. Once the anglers got closer to shore and had phone service, they started researching and determined they had caught a bigscale pomfret.
