Nearly 1,000-pound Tiger Shark

After a wearisome three-hour fight with a thousand-pound tiger shark, 21-year-old Tyler Kennedy finally had his tournament-winning shark in tow and on the way to the scales.

“I was more relieved than anything that we had managed to get it secured to the boat. I couldn’t have gone for too much longer, honestly,” he told the Press-Register in Alabama. His shark officially weighed in at 948.6 pounds and shattered the tournament record of 874.6 pounds for a tiger shark.

The senior at Auburn University in Mobile was taking part in the sixth annual Outcast Mega Shark Tournament. At 6 a.m. on Saturday morning, he finally hooked something 20 miles southeast of Orange Beach, Alabama.
