Hunter Carter was fishing with his dad at his grandpa's farm in Oklahoma when he hooked a three-pound bass. The fish was a lot of fun to get in because it ran then jumped out of the water a couple of times. Hunter's dad said the look on Hunter’s face was priceless when he finally landed his fish.
Hunter thought catching that bass was a great fun, but little did he know that the bass had a surprise in store for him.
At age 8, one of Hunter's favorite things to do when he helps his dad clean fish is to look in the fish's stomach to see what it has eaten. He's seen lots of things such as minnows, crawdads and frogs but he wasn't prepared to see what his bass had eaten: a rat.
This was a first for everyone. Hunter was surprised and said he didn't know the bass would eat a rat. He wondered how the fish got it. Hunter's dad explained that the rat must have fallen in the water, and observed that bass will eat anything that doesn't eat them. Hunter decided just in case his fish story sounded like a fish story no one would believe, it was best to take a picture of proof that his bass did eat a rat. If anyone asks, Hunter can show his fish story photo proof.
