WATCH: Fisherman finds 200-year-old rifle at bottom of lake

Ray Goff, a fisherman from Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, made an awesome discovery while fishing on Lake Winnebago. What he thought was a piece of drift wood snagged on his Richter anchor turned out to be a 200-year-old flintlock rifle. He would have tossed the piece of old wood aside if it hadn’t have been for the tell-tale firing mechanism. See more of his impressive find in the video above.
