KEY WEST, FL – We have a rare fish tale so big, it’s “goblin” up a shrimp boat.

Carl Moore was out shrimping off the coast of Key West, Florida when he pulled up a goblin shark about twenty feet long, in his net-full of shrimp. Moore released the big-fin beast back into the water after he snapped a picture of it.

The goblin shark is a rare species of it’s kind that lives about a thousand to three thousand feet under water, and has a very big appetite. Maybe that’s how the goblin shark got its name, it just gobbles up its food.

Talk about a monster catch, looks like you can use shrimp to catch a shark.
