Watch What This Guy Caught Fishing On The Beach In Florida In An AMAZING Video

Talk about a good days fishing, this guy drags in a monster hammerhead shark!! Hammerheads are aggressive hunters, feeding on smaller fish, octopuses, squid, and crustaceans. They do not actively seek out human prey, but are very defensive and will attack when provoked.

Hammerhead sharks are consummate predators that use their oddly shaped heads to improve their ability to find prey. Their wide-set eyes give them a better visual range than most other sharks. And by spreading their highly specialized sensory organs over their wide, mallet-shaped head, they can more thoroughly scan the ocean for food.

Here’s what the guy who posted the video to YouTube had to say about this incredible catch:

I was on the phone talking to my buddy Dan, who was fishing on the beach and during our conversation, he hooked up to a monster shark! I drove down to the beach to help Dan and his crew catch and release the monster shark. It turned out to be a 13ft great hammerhead shark. The following day around the same time, Dan gives me a call to let me know that Mark is hooked up to another giant shark!
