Two boaters saw a bald eagle pull a huge fish out of the St. Croix River Wednesday afternoon and the video is incredible.

The bird can be seen floating along, and at first, appears to be injured as it swims to shore. But it was not injured, it was hauling in its lunch — what appears to be a live muskie. 

Andie and Dan Goff of Woodbury, Minnesota, told the Star Tribune they were near the Afton Marina in Minnesota when it happened. 

"It's a huge live muskie," Dan can be heard saying in the video.

"Good job buddy!" Andie says.

Another video posted to Dan's Twitter account shows the eagle enjoying its shore lunch.
