California Fishermen Catch World-Record Shark! (PHOTOS)

What you’re looking at below is a 1,300 pound shortfin mako shark. The razor toothed monster was recently caught by a group fishermen off the coast of Huntington Beach, California. The three men were on their annual fishing trip, about 15 miles off the coast when they hooked the 11-foot beast.

Once the fish was hooked on the line it put up a major fight, one that took the sportsmen over two hours to reel in. The record for this particular species of mako is 20 feet long and weighting in at 1,000 pounds, and the largest caught by a California angler is 527 pounds.

According to KTLA, the shark will be donated to a research organization for study.
