A group of fishermen said they’ve spent years in the Detroit River and never caught anything like the massive tiger muskie.

But a Trenton man in his kayak caught the fish near Grosse Ile.

Robert Sharkey said the 4-foot fish, weighing more than 30 pounds, proved its strength -- pulling Sharkey’s kayak as he tried to catch him.

After a few pictures with the King of the River, he released it back into the river.
