Hats off to Cody Harlan, Jonathan Cook and Robert Trutt, who successfully snagged a 277.7-pound bull shark ... with their bare hands.
The three were fishing for pompano near Ft. Walton Beach, Florida, on Thursday when they crossed the massive shark near the shore. The trio failed at baiting the shark with their line and decided to take a risk. Wading in chest-deep water, Cody grabbed the shark's tail and started pulling it to shore. Jonathan and Robert joined in when Cody was in knee-deep water with the fish.
Once on land, the three discovered the shark had a 40-pound fish stuck in its jaws, choking on its dinner. Jonathan added, "Otherwise we could have been its dinner."
