Florida Angler Catches, Releases 1,000-pound Hammerhead

Palm Beach County angler Peter Buban made the astounding catch of a 13-foot, nine-inch hammerhead shark earlier this month, and in the middle of a tournament no less. According to WTFV, Buban caught the 1,000-pound fish while competing in the 2014 Blacktip Challenge fishing tournament. Not surprisingly, Buban ended the day with the largest fish caught in the tournament’s six-year history, as well as a personal best.

“We just saw the reel start screaming, and I jump, I put up my harness and I start to fight the fish and I realize it’s going to be a huge fish!” Buban told WPTV.
