A man was surf fishing while on holiday at Emerald Isle, Carteret County, North Carolina, when he caught a shark by surprise (Photo gallery below).
According to WCTI.com, the photos were taken by Jonette Talbott near the 2500 block of Ocean Drive.
After the photos were taken, the shark was released back into the water, along with a stingray that was also caught by the man.
