BOONVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

A Chandler pastor and avid fisherman recently caught we he calls "the trophy of a lifetime."

Leon Hatchett, Pastor of Wayside Chapel Church, caught a 40-pound Cat Fish with his 16-foot cane poll from a fishing pit in his backyard on Fetter Lane in Boonville.

It took him 20 minutes of fighting and running back and forth in his yard to land the fish.

Pastor Hatchett believes that the fact that he was able to catch the massive fish was a true miracle.

"God has used many things in the Bible; fish, rooster, donkey, dove, raven; even an axe head, you name it," Pastor Hatchett says.

A special thanks to Pastor Hatchett for sending in these pictures.
