Large shark caught in south Jersey

Friday, August 17, 2012

Witnesses say a man in a kayak hauled in a big shark about 200 yards off a New Jersey beach.

The man brought the shark, believed to be a 6-foot Thresher, ashore at the 58th Street beach in Ocean City Wednesday night.

Teddy Lyons tells WMGM-TV the man often kayaks with a bucket of chum and usually catches smaller brown sharks.

After taking some pictures, the shark was released back into the ocean.

Thresher sharks are not known to attack people.
