A fisherman in Nantucket hooked a 7-foot, 200-pound shark and spent about 45 minutes trying to reel it in over the weekend, but he just couldn't get it to shore.

So, he finally handed off the pole, jumped in the water, and wrestled the shark onto the beach.

The 24-year-old posed for some pictures with his catch then let it go. He says the shark wasn't hurt.

The fisherman says he has caught more than 100 sharks in the past eight months, mostly in Florida.
