Not quite as big as Steve Spielberg’s Jaws…
Twenty-nine-year-old Jason Kresse of Freeport says he and two crew members were dumping fish guts in the Gulf of Mexico about 3:45 a.m. Monday when they heard splashes in the distance and then something hit the side of their 25-foot boat.
It’s the catch of a lifetime, but it’s not clear whether a Texas fisherman landed an 8-foot shark or it landed him.
A shark in an apparent rush to feed had jumped into the back and was thrashing around, reports AOL/ABC News. Kresse says the crew couldn’t get close to the 375-pound fish to toss it back in the water. It died several hours later.
Below you’ll find a video featuring said shark, which is said to be mounted in the coming weeks.
