Man wrestles shark with bare hands

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

A 200-pound sandbar shark met its match on the beach in Nantucket, Mass. and it was all caught on video.

Elliot Sudal, 24, was fishing for bluefish off the waters of his hometown when he noticed the fish were coming up half eaten. He blamed the sharks swimming in the area.

The avid fisherman grabbed a stronger rod and lured one of the sharks with bait.

The sandbar shark tugged on the line and Sudal refused to let go.

After 45 minutes, the shark had tired out. Sudal ran out and wrestled the shark to the shore.

A large crowd gathered and Sudal posed for pictures.

"I dragged it back into the water. It was only out for a minute or so," said Sudal.

It's not the first time the boat captain had captured a shark but the first time with his bare hands.

"I should get a safer hobby like smoking heavier," said Sudal.
