A Texas man caught a 1,149-pound shark on only his second saltwater fishing trip. Bill Walters of Granbury, Tex., caught the shortfin mako shark at Port Fourchon, La. The big fish measured 11 feet 8 inches.
Nabbing the shark wasn’t easy, though. With the help of nine friends and the boat’s captain, it took Walters six hours to haul in his catch.
