'Record' Shark Caught Off Californian Coast

A huge mako shark caught off the coast of California could be the largest of the breed ever caught.

Jason Johnston caught the 1,323lb shark after a two-and-a-half hour battle, the Orange County Register reported.

"I've hunted lions and brown bears, but I've never experienced anything like this," Mr Johnston told the newspaper.

"It felt like I had a one-tonne diesel truck at the end of the line, and it wasn't budging."
