Texas Fisherman Makes Bizarre Catch

By Tim Binnall

A fisherman in Texas was rendered speechless when he reeled in what he thought was a sizeable catch and discovered that he'd actually snagged a snake that was attacking a fish. Chase McCray reportedly hooked the bizarre combination of creatures while fishing at a site near Houston known as Langham Creek.

Since both the snake and the fish were still alive when he caught them, the kindhearted fisherman managed to separate the two creatures and set them each of them free. Perhaps sensing that no one would believe his story, McCray managed to capture a brief video of the strange catch and his hilarious deadpan expression in the footage perfectly sums up the astounding scene.
