DETROIT, Mich. -A man in the Motor City recently reeled in a one-of-a-kind catch.

While fishing on Lake Saint Clair last Friday, he caught a large goldfish.

“Basically, I was doing what I always do, trying to catch perch and I thought I had a big perch on. Um…definitely not a perch,” said Mike Martin, “I’ve been fishing this lake for 20 years, first one I’ve ever caught. I called my dad the second it came out of the hole. I didn’t know what to do with it…asked him what I should do with it. I’ve never caught a goldfish. What do you do with a goldfish?”

Martin believes the 3 pound, 15- inch fish was originally someone’s pet before being turned loose in the lake.

He’s now planning to mount the catch on his wall.
