“Some jigs can cost $20,” he said in an interview with WFTS. “I was just looking for a way to make a jig without spending so much money.”

“I couldn’t believe the gear held up and we landed the fish. That was just as unbelievable for me as using the wrench itself.”

Hey, who knows, maybe this will start a new fishing trend. Who knew that fish would try for a wrench? Maybe you don’t always have to use the right tool for the right job.

That’s an impressive feat in and of itself but it’s how he caught it that’s even more impressive. Hein used a number-11 wrench and dangled it off a $50 rod to land the colossal catch.
