(CHATTANOOGA, Tenn.) -- Near a fishing tournament in Tennessee, two teenagers caught what is likely a once in a lifetime catch-- money. Mark Spicer and Dylan Crumbley were out fishing at Blythe Ferry north of Chattanooga when they reeled in two large bags filled with more than $10,000. "I thought I had a turtle at first, started reeling it in and it turned out to be bag," Spicer said.
The boys then called the Rhea County Sheriff's Office to report their findings.
Officials say the money, which was dyed red, is linked to a December bank robbery.
