A Connecticut man caught an incredible fish last month.

Joe Rivas, 32, of Oxford, caught a fish 1.04 meters long and weighing about 12 kilograms in Lake Lillinonah.

Connecticut Fish and Wildlife posted a photo of Riva and his catch on Facebook on July 28.

"How is your summer fishing going?", the agency wrote on Facebook.

"Thanks Joe for sharing this photo of an impressive tiger muskie he caught recently."

The agency also explained that a tiger muskie is a cross between a muskellunge and a northern pike.

The News Times reported that a regional organization has been harvesting tiger muscles in Lake Lillinonah for about five to seven years.
