Fisherman reels in 800-lb Mako shark in Florida

Fisherman Joey Polk may have broken the record for land-based shark fishing after he caught a massive 11-foot Mako shark. According to a video report by GeoBeats, Polk reeled in the 800-pound monster with the help of his cousin, Ernie, who previously held the record. It took the men about an hour to get the shark on shore.

Joey and Ernie fish a lot together and are known to tag their catches and release them back into the ocean. This time, however, things were different. The Mako shark was too worn out from the fight it put up. The cousins decided to load the shark onto their pick-up truck and take it home. They ended up cooking it and eating it with their family.

The Florida fishermen decided to keep the location where they caught the shark a secret. They don't want any competition in the area that they have designated for themselves. Check out the video above for more.
