TOCUMWAL, Australia, Dec. 29 (UPI) -- An Australian family out fishing reeled in a massive Murray cod and found it to be the same size as their youngest child -- 3 feet.

Todd and Andrea Mansell posted a video to YouTube showing the cod being landed from the Murray River in Tocumwal, New South Wales.

"You can't have caught that, this has to be a dream!" an excited child says as Todd pulls the cod onto shore.

The couple has their young daughter stretch out next to the fish to show it measures the same size -- 36 inches.

The family posted a second video showing the cod being released.
