8th grader reels in "Billfish Grand Slam"

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

Not everyone fishes for a living. Many do it for fun.

The Raleigh News and Observer reported 8th grader Will Kilpatrick became only the third person in state history to catch the "Billfish Grand Slam."

In his first ever deep sea fishing trip, he caught a blue marlin, a white marlin and a sailfish.

A representative from the International Game Fish Association said it's a nearly impossible feat and it's only happened two other times since the group started keeping records back in 1964.
