John Radtke and his friends went fishing off the Howard Frankland Bridge in Florida late Monday for sharks. They came back with a monster.
The men reeled in a 400-pound 12-foot long bull shark shortly after 3 a.m. on Monday, July 9. It took nearly four hours to reel in the big predator.
Bull sharks are some of the most notorious of the known man-eaters.
According to the International Shark Attack File, bull sharks rank third in unprovoked attacks, just behind the great white and the tiger respectively.
This is the second massive shark to make headlines recently after an 800-pound mako was caught in California. Read about that story here.
