An 8-year-old reeled in a nearly 700 pound tiger shark last week, possibly setting a new world record.
Jayden, who weighs just 88 pounds, reeled in the 692-pound tiger shark on a 33 pound fishing line while another man on board held his harness.
“I was trying to hold myself by pushing off the wall in the boat,” Jayden told Nine News.
Jayden began fishing at 18 months old.
The current record for the International Game Fish Association’s junior and smallfry category is a 687-pound tiger shark caught by Ian Hissey in 1997.
Tiger sharks can weigh up to 1,500 pounds and are not a protected species in Australia.
