LONG BEACH TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — A 13-year-old boy fishing with his father on a New Jersey beach has reeled in a 200-pound shark.

A video posted on Facebook on Sunday shows Gianni Mandile pulling the fish most of the way in before dad Joseph Mandile grabs the shark’s tail and pulls it onto the sand while taking care not to get bit.

The Mandiles posed for a quick photo with the shark before Joseph dragged it back into the water and sent it on its way.

The Mandiles use a catch-and-release fishing policy, but Gianni tells New York’s WABC-TV that he’ll still have bragging rights because he’s caught a bigger fish than all his friends.
