Marine reels in monster shark-–but his next move is what’s really getting beachgoers’ attention

A U.S. Marine is captured on video reeling in an enormous tiger shark off the coast of North Carolina.

The beast seen in the video, almost 12 feet in length and weighing between 600-700 pounds, was not tagged and was released safely back into the ocean.
