(ABC 6 News) - A singing fish is apparently better than an alarm system or watch dog... at least in this case.

The Olmsted County Sheriff says someone broke into the “Hooked on Fishing” store off of Highway 63 North in Rochester.  The suspect reportedly kicked down the door, but was spooked by a Big Mouth Billy Bass singing fish. It’s a fake mounted fish that sings songs like “Take Me To The River.”  The shop has it set up so the fish will start singing anytime someone walks in the door.

Authorities say the supposed burglar was so spooked, nothing was taken from the shop. 

Estimated damage to the door is $700.
