Hanson Grant and his friends were angling off a Nantucket beach recently when they reeled in a 6-foot shark.
This video shows what can only be described as a extremely rare catch, with the bait in its mouth while one of the friends steers it in by the tailfin.
The animal is soon released after the friends figure out how to remove the hook from the shark’s mouth, but not before taking a few trophy photographs.
