Joe Schmelzinger was fishing out on Lake Ontario when he caught the catch of his life.

On Aug. 26th, Joe was out with his family for a little vacation and was fishing and saw one of the strangest things.

There was a deer struggling for its life out on Lake Ontario.

Joe pulled the young buck out of the water. The task wasn’t easy. The deer was likely spooked by the family and did not behave smoothly. While Joe was wrestling to save the deer’s life, his family caught the rescue on video.

As the family was returning to release the deer, people were asking, “Did you catch anything?” Joe replies, “Just a baby deer!”
