BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) - A Brunswick County woman reeled in something she wasn't expecting Thursday night.

Pam Sullivan emailed the newsroom a picture of her unusual catch. She said she hauled in the mystery creature around 11 p.m. while on the fishing pier in Sunset Harbor, NC.

She said she caught it on hook.  It had texture like a jelly fish and that it lets off a sort of jelly-like substance.  When she tried to pick it up, "its tail ruptured and a lot of the jelly-like substance came out and it shrunk up".

We've reached out to some local experts and will let you know if we can figure out what it is!  What do you think it is?  Have you ever caught something you couldn't identify?  You can always text or email it to us at pics@wect.com.
