- Bren O’Leary, left, and Will Slade re­cently came across quite the sur­prise while haul­ing in a her­ring net near Car­bon­ear. This 6-foot long shark was found caught up in it. Al­ready dead, the large fish had to be brought back to a lo­cal wharf so the men could safely de­tach it from the net. This is ac­tu­ally the sec­ond shark the two men have ac­ci­den­tally caught while fish­ing. O’Leary said a shark got tan­gled in one of their gill nets about 10 years ago.
