LAUDERDALE-BY-THE-SEA, FL – 21-yr-old fisherman, Ryan Polash, reeled a 13-foot Hammerhead Shark to shore off a beach near Ft. Lauderdale, FL.

Polash says he brought it to shore not only to take a picture but cut the fishing line.

“In order to release the fish on the pier, you would end up having to cut the line, and there would be about 15 foot of line tangling, hanging down from the fish, which would get caught on a reef, could end up killing the fish in the long run.”

Polash was left with scratches from rubbing up against the Hammerhead’s rough skin. And of course pictures to prove this was no fish tale!
