A school of mahi mahi has drawn two anglers' attention to a bag of cocaine.

Two men in the USA who went fishing on Sunday returned to shore with an unusual catch — up to US $1 million of cocaine!

According to an article in the Idaho Statesman, the fishermen were about 70 miles southeast of Charleston when they came across a bag

Once they pulled the package aboard, they opened it and discovered 30 bricks of cocaine.

The fishermen said they were drawn to the cocaine-filled package that was part of floating debris because “a school of mahi-mahi were jumping around it".

“Every time time we passed it we caught a fish,” one of the men said.

The men turned the drugs over to the Coast Guard, which estimated the 30 to 50 kg of cocaine had a street value of around $1 million.
