'Biggest shark': Man catches 7-foot sand tiger shark on Sea Isle City beach, releases it back into the ocean

A normal day at the beach quickly became a once-in-a-lifetime experience for a group of beach goers this weekend.

PJ Braun, a man known as the "Shark Fisher," caught a 7-foot-long sand tiger shark on the beach near 82nd Street in Sea Isle City on Saturday.

He says the massive catch was his "biggest" one yet.

The wild moment was caught on camera by Prospect Park Police Chief Dave Madonna, one of nearly 250 people who gathered to watch.


In the video, Braun is seen posing with the shark, dragging it back to the ocean by its tail fine, then letting it free.

The crowd erupts into applause as the shark swims away - a moment they will never forget!

Braun says his No. 1 priority is the shark's safety, making sure it is never taken out of the water.
