A Toms River resident however, ended his fishing trip in Seaside Park with a little more than just a nibble on the line.
Now, I've had friends who do this type of fishing when they'd visit the shore, but I don't think they ever caught anything quite this big!
Talk about an amazing rescue! This was anything but a typical day at the beach.
A big thank you goes out to this brave beach-goer who rescued a 3 foot sand shark with his bare hands in Beach Haven on Long Beach Island over the weekend...
