PORT STEPHENS FISHERMAN REEL IN GREAT WHITE SHARK

Two fisherman at Hawks Nest landed more than the feed they set out for yesterday, hauling in a Great White Shark on Bennetts Beach.

After a 30 minute fight, they landed their surprise catch on the sand – a tagged juvenile around two and a half metres long.

The fishermen unhooked the white pointer and released it back into the ocean.

The haul comes after a week of shark sightings between the surf club and Yacaaba headland.
