Florida fisherman reels in 800 pound shark from the shore
By Austin Prickett
A Florida fisherman reeled in the catch of a lifetime: an 800 pound shark! Joey Polk reeled in the tremendous haul from the shore of a Florida Gulf beach and his cousins caught the catch on camera. The fisherman would rather keep his catch a secret because he would rather not scare tourists from the Gulf of Mexico. He is also scared of those who are attempting to ban land-based shark fishing. The fisherman says about 95% of his catches he releases but the large shark went home with him in his pickup.
