This catch of the day came didn't just bring home dinner; A fishing team reeled in the big bucks when they caught a 796-pound marlin during a major fishing tournament in the Gulf of Mexico!

Team Reel Addiction of Pensacola earned more than $450,000 along with an unbelievable fisherman's tale.

It took them 47 minutes to bring the massive marlin on-board, but the hefty fish was clearly worth the wait.

Out of the 117 boats that entered the competition, it looks like this team just knew the tricks of the trout -- even though it was a marlin.
