┬áThe Sun Herald reported that 45-year-old Tim King, of Ocean Springs, hooked the monster shark Sunday, while aboard Kevin Higgenbotham’s 36-foot boat Finatic. A crew of seven men fought the shark for about three hours before landing it. They got it aboard with help from a crane on an oil rig.

Higgenbotham, of Biloxi, said they didn’t know what they had hooked until the nearly 12-foot shark came completely out of the water 10 feet from the boat.
