A Sherman Texas man spent the day at Lake Texoma with his family over the weekend hoping to get a big catch, and he did just that.

But Bob Faulkner never dreamt that big catch would turn out to be a stretch Hummer limousine. When he attached his anchor and tried to remove the object, he pulled in a large piece of vinyl.

He contacted the Sheriff's Office and when deputies arrived it took four tries, with Faulkner's help, to reel in the limo.

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