POMPANO BEACH, Fla. -- A fisherman reeled in a big catch near Pompano Beach Monday afternoon, and it was all caught on camera.

It was a 13-foot hammerhead shark, caught by a fisherman on the pier at Commercial Boulevard.

It was reeled in to cut the line as close to its mouth as possible. Pictures were taken, then the animal was dragged back into the water where it swam away.
