Texas man nabs 468kg hammerhead shark

Texas man nabs 468kg hammerhead shark”

An angler in the Texas City Jaycees Tackle Time Fishing Tournament reeled in a giant hammerhead shark this weekend.

In a photo posted to Facebook by the Texas City Jaycees, the shark appears to be at least twice the length of McClellen's height.

McClellan's catch broke a record from 1980, when a 871 pound hammerhead was caught.

The shark was brought in as part of the annual fishing competition, which ran from June 30th - July 9th this year.

And by giant, we mean more than 1,000 pounds of shark. It enables the club to put on community events throughout the year and "raises funds for the entire year" through the competition.

"Winning 1st place and smashing a 30yr State of Texas record", the caption read.

Second place went to James Massa, a fisherman who caught a massive tiger shark that weighed in at 964 pounds.
