Woman reels in 15ft shark with a fishing rod

SHARE

Fisherwoman Charlene Dillon, 30, reeled in the 15ft shark using a lightweight rod and line.

It took a 90-minute struggle and Charlen had to be strapped into a harness to stop her being pulled overboard while hauling in the Bluntnose sixgill shark.

The huge fish weighing 1,200lb – as heavy as a grand piano – was caught at a depth of 200ft off Carrigaholt, County Clare.

After making the successful catch, Charlene released him back in to the ocean.
