Fishermen snag huge tiger shark off South Carolina

FOLLY BEACH, SC (KTRK) -- Some fishermen are showing off their big catch. They landed an 800-pound, 13-feet-long tiger shark.

Michael Huff reeled in the big guy while fishing about a mile off Folly Beach in South Carolina.

Huff said he couldn't get him in the boat, so they tied it to the back of the boat and dragged it inland.

Once there, they asked a few tourists for help.

Huff said, "We pulled up to them... they came in and helped us load it in."

And this isn't the biggest shark he's ever captured. Huff said he once reeled in a 1,200-pound fish.
