Monster shark caught off Calif. coast (local6)

A group of fishermen may have broken a world record with a huge shark caught
off the coast of California.

A fisherman named Jason Johnston, from Mesquite, Texas, chartered a boat out
of Huntington Beach on Monday, Los Angeles TV station KTLA reported.

His group hooked a massive shortfin mako shark about 15 miles offshore.

The shark was 12 feet long, 8 feet in girth and more than 1,300 pounds,
according to the fishermen's estimates.

It took more than two hours and a quarter-mile of line to reel in the shark,
according to Johnston.

"It's unreal. This thing is definitely a killing machine," he told KTLA. "Any
wrong step and I could have went out of the boat and to the bottom of the
ocean."

The shark was being taken to a weigh yard in Gardena to be certified by a
weigh master.

It was expected to be donated to a research organization for study.

As they waited for news on their possible world record, the fishermen planned
to head out again on Tuesday for another adventure.
