TILDEN TWP., Pa. -

A man from western Pennsylvania is still shocked by what he reeled in while fishing earlier this year, and it has nothing to do with the fish.

Raymond Biddle caught a fish that was tagged as part of Cabela's "Fish for Millions" contest.

He entered his information online and learned he's the proud owner of a brand new $60,000 boat.

"Really excited for me and my wife. Looking forward to just taking it out and putting it through its tests," said Raymond Biddle Jr., Jefferson Hills.

Biddle picked up his prize at Cabela's in Tilden Township on Thursday.
