FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — It's not the usual catch of the day.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that a man who was fishing on Saturday at a North Texas lake reeled in something unusual: a semi-automatic rifle.

Police say the man had been fishing with relatives at Lake Arlington, about 13 miles west of Fort Worth, when he caught a Galil ACE rifle on his hook.

After reeling in the weapon, the man went to a park in Fort Worth and called police.

Authorities took possession of the weapon and now have it in their property room.
