A Florida man was caught up in something completely unexpected during a fishing trip on Monday to celebrate his birthday.
Jorge Bustamante caught a large bale of marijuana in the water off Pompano Beach, about 11 miles to the north to Fort Lauderdale.
He informed WSVN that he had notified to the US Coast Guard, but not until he was able to capture some images of his huge catch.
Bustamante said he was joking that the present came from the “Pablo Escobar’s birthday present,” and authorities labeled him as a “square grouper.”
