USA: the biggest shark ever caught on rod and reel

In late 1986 angler Frank Mundus and Donnie Braddick caught a 3.427-pound (1552 kilos) great white shark about 30 miles off Montauk, and only 20 miles from Block Island, which still holds the record for the largest shark ever caught by rod and reel. The capture of the shark was very controversial at the time with some saying he had killed the whale on which the shark was feeding when caught and that the white shark was harpooned rather than caught by rod and reel.
