GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - A record setting catch was pulled in in Mississippi waters on Saturday, as David Rogers from Mobile broke two state shark records.
Blank first broke the record for biggest shark caught when he reeled in a bull shark weighing 203 pounds. The fisherman then broke the record for the biggest tiger shark, with 390 pound catch.
The previous record for sharks caught in the Mississippi Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo was 180 pounds.
Rodeo officials say it is the first time anyone has ever broken the record twice in one trip.
"Caught plenty of sharks, I think we had 10 or 11 that we brought to the boat. Released all of them except the two that we brought in, broke off two or three others," said Rogers. "It was a productive trip."
Both sharks were carried to shore by a tow truck.
The Mississippi Deep Sea Rodeo will conclude on July the Fourth.
