A Florida shark fisherman has reeled in a great white that measures at least 13 feet in length.
- John McLean, the owner of Big John Shark Fishing Adventures, was leading a 24-hour charter off Pensacola Beach last month when the shark took the bait, a "massive yellowfin tuna head," he says.
- In the struggle that followed, McLean and four of his clients took turns reeling the massive creature in, he says.
- All totaled, it took about an hour and seven minutes for McLean and his crew to reel in the massive great white, the boat captain says. Then, about a minute after they successfully brought the shark in, they released it back into the ocean, according to McLean.
