Interesting Historical Catch

In July of 1931, Wm. G. Presley, of the A.C. fishery of Galilee, NJ had a nasty surprise in his fishing pound net. A large Bull Shark was tangled in his net. After an hour fight he was able to kill the shark and drag it to shore. He described it a large bull shark, with a mouth big enough to swallow a person. It weighted in at 500 Lbs. The shark was sent to the Fulton Street Market for sale.
