Fisherman reels in a handgun

Yesterday’s catch of the day? A ditched handgun!
A man fishing on a pier near Carson Beach thought he had caught a big one he could brag to his buddies about when his fishing pole began to arc.
But what Alberto Pina, 37, of Roxbury reeled in was “upsetting and scary,” he said.
“I reeled in a gun,” Pina said, still hyperventilating as he described his catch more than an hour later. “Yesterday I caught a 27-inch bluefish. Today? A gun.”
Pina had his 3-year-old son with him when he went to the pier Sunday afternoon to “burn some energy.”
“My son was riding his scooter as I fished,” he said.
Then he pulled up his big catch.
“To pull something like that out of the water is extremely dangerous. I didn’t want my son to see something like that, but he did. Horrible,” Pina said. “When I pulled it up, I dropped it over at the pier. I didn’t dare to touch it.”
Boston police spokeswoman Nicole Grant said Pina called 911 at 6:11 p.m., reporting that he “was fishing and caught a gun on his hook.”
Detectives were sent out to recover the barnacle-encrusted gun and interview Pina. Grant said it is still unclear whether the gun was real.
As a frequent fisherman, Pina said he goes out to “catch dinner” often, so when he feels a grand pull at the pole, he gets excited.
Not this time.
“No dinner tonight,” Pina said. “I came here for some striper, not a rifle.”
