A father and son team from North Carolina has made headlines for reportedly reeling in a massive swordfish that weighed hundreds of pounds.
Michael Tickle, 38, and his son Kelson, 13, caught a 560-pound swordfish on Dec. 29, about 60 miles east of the Beaufort Inlet, according to Sport Fishing Magazine, an online recreational fishing publication.
The pair, who are from Beaufort, North Carolina, were joined by boat mate Zach Grantham, 28, and the group reportedly spent five-and-a-half hours reeling in the large swordfish, according to the outlet.
Fox News Digital reached out to Tickle for comment.
The swordfish was transported to the Big Rock Landing Marina in Morehead City, a port town in Carteret County, North Carolina, according to photos shared on Facebook and Twitter.
The fish reportedly measured 165 inches in length and 106 inches in girth.
