UK Angler Fights 14-Foot Thresher Shark from Small Boat

When it comes to shark catching, no one will ever confuse the English Channel with Montauk Point, NY, and yet British anglers do get their fair share of shark action. Just check out this video captured over the weekend of a 14-foot thresher shark caught by Wayne Comben near the Isle of Wight. His fishing group was aboard a 17-foot center console. Thought to weigh more than 500 pounds, the thresher battled for more than two hours -- and four miles. It likely would have surpassed the British thresher record of 350 pounds. The fish was released.
