MARATHON, Fla. - A fisherman made a huge catch in the Florida Keys Thursday, when he snagged a 4-foot lobster on the last day of lobster mini-season.

Sgt. Dennis Coleman of the Monroe County Sheriff's office says the lobster in the photo above was caught by a lobster fisherman at Tom's Harbor Cut bridge in Marathon.

He says the cooler the lobster is sitting on is 48 inches long.

The Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary commented, "Imagine how many young lobster that big daddy has spawned to populate Keys reefs with more bugs!"

Coleman became famous earlier this year when he sold a chicken nugget shaped like a cowboy boot for $52 on eBay.

The money went to Coleman's non-profit organization, "Keys Cops for Kids."
