Here's a real fish story - a 14-foot, 700-pound tiger shark caught off North Myrtle Beach.
The giant shark was caught last Saturday when six Marines from Camp LeJeune took a charter boat to go shark fishing while on a bachelor party.
Capt. Richard Long Jr. says the mate and the Marines in the 43-foot boat spotted the shark about three miles offshore in about 35 feet of water. Long says they looped a rope around its tail and dragged it backward until the shark drowned. Long says he's never seen anyone pull in a shark that big.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reports tiger sharks are 1 of the top three types of sharks involved in unprovoked fatal shark attacks.
