Baton Rouge's Lance Burgos was enjoying a weekend camping trip to Lake Fausse Point State Park with his 11-year-old daughter Evan on Saturday when a jug line in a nearby canal caught their eye.
"She had been watching that yellow float swimming around, and she said, 'I want to know what's on the other end,'" the elder Burgos said. "I told her it was either a catfish or a garfish."
He promised to pull the line up just to take a peak when they headed out that afternoon, but what had swallowed the hook was more than they bargained for.
Roughly 12 to 14 feet more.
