(CBSNews.com) - One moment, Elliot Sudal was fishing in Massachusetts' Sconset Beach; then he was wrestling a seven-foot long, 200-pound shark.

The Nantucket man was fishing Sunday,CBS Station WBZ Boston reported, when he saw that the catch he reeled in was bitten in half.

"I had my shark gear in my car, ran out and got it, threw out half a bluefish on a hook and like 30 seconds later I had hooked up on this shark," Sudal said. "It just pulled out like a 150 yards of line and started going."

Sudal fought with the brown shark for 45 minutes. When the shark got ashore, he handed the fishing rod to his cousin and then went into the water. "You have to run in the water and grab it by the tail and pull it on shore because you can't just drag it on because they're too heavy," he explained.

After having the shark on shore for about a minute, Sudal, who said he caught 100 sharks in the last eight months, let the shark go back into the water.
