310-Pound Shark Caught In Maryland Waters

August 14th, 2018 by WCBC Radio

A commercial fisherman pulled an 8.6-foot, 310-pound bull shark from his pound net trap at the mouth of the Patuxent River in Southern Maryland on Monday — an uncommon catch that has been the buzz of the bay as the picture has made its rounds. The Baltimore Sun reports Larry “Boo” Powley, 65, of Hoopers Island, said he found the shark, which had swum into the trap just below Cedar Point to feed on the fish inside, when he checked his four-pound nets at sunrise.
