PARK RAPIDS, Minn. --A West Fargo man and his dad's kayaking experience is going viral after watching a huge fish eat his dinner.

"Jeez look at that. that's a huge northern too look at that!" said Cody Wolters who caught it on camera. 

He said this happened Saturday, July 8, on a lake at Itasca State Park in Minnesota.

In true fisherman fashion he doesn't want to give away the exact location of where this happened.

He said the Muskie is estimated to be around 45 inches and the northern in its mouth around 35 inches.

Since posting the video Sunday morning it had already gotten 1.6 million views just 10 hours later.
