TEN YEARS TO THE DAY, TAGGED TIGER SHARK CAUGHT A SEC­OND TIME

Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

THIS 11ft shark was caught a decade to the day since it was last landed.

The colos­sal tiger shark was tagged and re­leased off the coast of Texas, USA, in late 2006 when it was a ju­ve­nile less than 3ft long – then it went off the radar for 10 years.

But ru­mours that the preda­tor had died were scotched when shore­caster Zach Wolk beached the gi­ant and the tag was dis­cov­ered in­tact.

Incredibly, Zach’s shark took the bait at a spot less than 40 miles away from where it was last let go as a pup.

Zach pre­pares to re­lease the tiger shark.
