Now THAT'S a Shark

Surprise catch of 575-pound tiger shark could shatter world record

The picture of the shark is indeed impressive, its bigger than the man that caught it.

Not only is this a very large shark, the feat is more impressive for the equipment used to make the catch:

Brett Sinclair's recent catch of a 575-pound tiger shark is impressive not merely because of the predator's sheer size, but because it was made on fishing line with a breaking strength of only 13 pounds ... aboard a boat that was not much longer than the fearsome beast.

I wonder if anyone aboard on first seeing the shark breach the water said "We're Gonna need a bigger boat".
