Video: Fishermen Catch 550lb Shark

July 19, 2010

[Graphic video warning] Yesterday at the Robinson’s Marina Fishing Tournament the team aboard ‘Sea Horse III’, reeled in a tiger shark which we measured at 11 foot long, wasn’t weighed however many veteran fishermen in attendance estimated its weight at 400 – 500lbs, and we understand the shark was officially documented at 550lbs.

You can read the full story and view a photo gallery of the shark here, and a video of the shark being hauled on deck and cut up for lobster pot bait is below. Please be forewarned that some may consider this video very graphic in nature, so viewer discretion is advised.

    Sad!!!! The shark should have been left in the sea. Sharks are being fished out everywhere. Sharks reproduce in a really slow rate. Humans really don’t know what they are doing. Overfishing will backfire on us. Shark meat also contains massive amounts of toxic material. It’s not good to eat.
