Fisherman Robert Malone was in for the catch of his life when he hauled in a 27-pound lobster off the coast of Maine.
Malone donated the giant lobster to the Department of Marine Resources instead of sending it straight to boil. Director Aimee Hayden-Rodriquez of the Maine State Aquarium said the lobster was caught in Boothbay Harbor, reported the Associated Press.
The lobster was named Rocky because it was captured by Malone in the Rockland area. However, Hayden Rodriquez said the name might have derived from Rocky, the film about the underdog boxer, because the lobster has huge claws. However, no one even thought about putting Rocky in boiling pot and instead, let him go 11 a.m. today.
While this giant lobster certainly made headlines, check out some other huge fish caught by unsuspecting fisherman.
