Man reels in 7-ft. shark off Nantucket coast

Posted: Updated:
NANTUCKET, M.A. -

It's a true story of man versus beast; a Nantucket man's fishing trip quickly changes from angling to shark wrangling.

Elliot Sudal was surfcasting when he managed to reel in a 7-foot shark, wrestle with it a bit, and then set it free.

It's a brown or sandbar shark that took him 45 minutes to get to shore.

Sudal is from Florida and says he loves shark fishing, but says he doesn't hurt the animals.

So after a few pictures and a couple of minutes on shore, he let this one go.
