LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (February 5, 2013)--An Arkansas couple set out for a day of fishing and came home with quite a fish story.
What they snared were two winning lottery tickets, including one worth $1 million.
The Arkansas Lottery Commission says Stephen and Terri Weaver were on a fishing trip when they stopped to buy the first ticket at T-Ricks convenience store in Pangburn, about 60 miles northeast of Little Rock.
They stopped at the same store on their way home and bought another ticket.
That first ticket turned out to be a $1 million winner and the second one netted the couple another $50,000.
The lottery commission said the Weavers claimed their cash Monday.
They said they plan to pay bills and invest in their retirement.
