HIGH ISLAND, Texas -

Call it the catch of the day for a group of Kingwood boys, who netted a bull shark.

They made their big catch in July off the beach at High Island.  The shark was about 4.5 feet long and weighed between 90 and 100 pounds.

It took 30 minutes of hard work to bring the shark to shore. 

After posing for a couple of pictures, the group released the shark back into the sea.
