Fishermen reel in 13-foot hammerhead shark

Friends release shark after taking photos

SANIBEL, Fla. – Three Florida fisherman have a great catch to brag about.

 

The anglers snagged a 13-foot hammerhead shark last week off the shore of Sanibel.

 

The friends caught the shark about 200 yards off the beach using a stingray as bait.

 

Between the three of them, it took 30 minutes to reel in the hammerhead.

 

The men took the shark into knee-deep water so they could cut the line and send it on its way.
