A 13-year-old boy from Weatherford, Texas, reeled in a MASSIVE tiger shark off the coast Port Aransas on Monday. The boy and his father were part of a group that chartered a 36-hour fishing trip in the Gulf, and after a lengthy battle, the boy managed to pull in the biggest catch of the trip. The shark clocked in a 844 pounds, and 11 feet 6 inches long.
Naturally some folks get pretty pissed at people that keep sharks, and many in comments section said he should have let it go, however as long as it measures over 64 inches, it’s perfectly legal to keep a tiger shark in the state of Texas.
* The photos are pretty gruesome if you’re not used to seeing big fish hanging like that. Now would be the time to look away…
However, 13-year-old Micah said he plans to save some of the meat for him and his family and then donate the rest.
