ENNIS, Tx. -- A couple in Texas credits McDonald's for the catch of a record setting bass.

When they had no luck, Matthew McNellis told KDAF his girlfriend suggested using a chicken McNugget as bait to catch fish.

That's when he reeled in a 24-and-a-half inch long bass weighing nearly 11 pounds!

McNellis says he took the bass to Highview Marina where it was declared a record-setting catch at Lake Bardwell.

Now that's a McFish!

The couple tossed the bass back into the water and McNellis says he may try using seasoned french fries from Wendy's as bait next time.
