NANTUCKET, Mass. -- An avid fisherman, Elliot Sudal, 24, made a huge catch of the "Jaws" variety on a Nantucket beach over the weekend, and it's no  fish story. It was all caught on video.

The video, which was posted to more than a dozen YouTube accounts, shows Sudal wrestling a 7-foot, 200-pound shark out of the surf. He used a half-eaten bluefish to hook the shark and then spent nearly an hour struggling to haul it ashore.

After posing for a few pictures, Sudal let the shark go. Sudal says he has caught about 100 sharks over the years and always releases them.
