A hum-vee-dinger of a fish tale

A Sherman, Texas man planned to spend the day at Lake Texoma with his family over the weekend, hoping he might get a big catch. He never expected what he found. His big catch turned out to be a stretch-Hummer limousine.

Bob Faulkner knew he hit something large and had to get it out of the water. When he attached his anchor and tried to remove the object, he pulled in a large piece of vinyl.

He contacted the Grayson County Sheriff's Office, and when deputies arrived, with Faulkner's help, and after four tries, they reeled the vehicle in.

Faulkner says he couldn't believe his eyes as the roof just kept coming out of the water.

He says finding any vehicle in the lake was a shock, but realizing he "caught" a stretch limousine is one catch he says he'll never forget.

The case is still under investigation and police say it was stolen from a local home and dumped.
