This Fisherman Caught An 800-Pound Shark Off The South Carolina Coast

This past weekend, a fisherman named Joe Morris hauled in an enormously terrifying tiger shark off the coast of South Carolina. The monster measured at 13-feet, 800 pounds.

Something that large swimming in the water sounds scary as all hell, but Morris told Fox Carolina that it’s not really a big deal:

According to Morris, he’s caught three sharks in the past that weighed at least 1,000 pounds.

Morris says it’s nothing out of the ordinary; just before catching the 800 pound tiger shark, he caught a 400 pound shark.

Eight-hundred-pound sharks, especially ones that sneak up on you when you’re just chilling in the ocean, are enough reason to never trek into open water again.
