Fishers caught this absolute monstrosity off the coast of New Jersey. The 11-foot, 820-pound shark took over an hour to subdue and tire out before they were finally able to catch it. 

The real shame though, is that they didn't catch this thing a few days later at the (and we swear we are not making this up) South Jersey Shark Tournament. Surely the second largest catch in New Jersey history would have qualified as the winner of that tournament!
