This fishing trip definitely paid for itself.
A group of fishermen in India wobbled in an impressive manta ray that reportedly weighed almost 1,800 pounds. After catching the impressive animal, the men sold it for a substantial amount of money.
The manta ray was caught off the coast of Digha, a coastal city in the East Medinipur district, reports the Southwest News Service (SWNS). The animal reportedly weighed 1,763 pounds.
Fishermen were reportedly able to sell the manta ray for around $ 26,000 at a nearby market.

Fox News previously reported that Chris Clarke was fishing off the Lyme Regis coast in England when a humpback whale made its way near his boat, the South West News Service (SWNS) reported. He was reportedly out on Friday, July 24, but did not see the whale until Sunday night.
“We had been awake all night working and we saw them go by,” he told SWNS. “It certainly woke us up a bit. Two of them were very far away, but one swam next to us and jumped out of the water. “
