DESTIN, Fla (AP) - Six friends went to a fishing tournament looking to catch some grouper. They caught a 844-pound mako shark instead.
Adlee Bruner and five others headed out into the Gulf of Mexico on a charter boat and came back with a record catch for the decades-old Destin Fishing Rodeo.
It took more than an hour to bring the 11-foot shark in.
After it was gutted, the mako still weighed 638 pounds and broke the tournament's previous shark division record by 338 pounds.
