AUSTRALIA: fisherman caught an huge tiger shark from the shore

Anlger Nick Schoevaart was fishing during the night with friends at Cheynes Beach near Albany, when he hooked the massive tiger shark, fighting it for 1 1/2 hours on 80-pound-test line.

Once the tiger shark was landed, he and his friends lift the fish on the pier and took a few photos with the protected fish before releasing it.

White and Tiger sharks are protected in all Australia waters where the law says “upon becoming aware of the taking of a protected fish, the person must take immediate steps to return the fish (to the water) with the least possible injury”.

Not doing so could result in fines up to $5,000.
