USA: 948 pound huge tiger shark
On the past year at the "Outcast Mega Shark Tournament", the event’s record for the largest shark weighed in was broken; not once, but twice.
An huge 874,8 pound tiger shark and a 787,6 pound tiger shark both broke a tournament record from late 2005 of "only" 576,6 pounds.
Following a three hour fight, angler Kennedy fishing aboard the 36-foot boat "Wendy Seas" hauled in a 948,6 pound female tiger shark, beating last year’s record by about 75 pounds.
Kennedy told “I’m still a little shocked because I was just thinking it would weigh somewhere in the 800s range. It was definitely bigger than I thought it was going to be.”
