A group of fishermen landed a big one at the Padre Island National Seashore yesterday.

Bacilio Hernandez brought the 11 foot Tiger Shark in, landing the ferocious fish was a group effort, helped out by Robert Huron, Monica Huron, Jr. Garcia and Gilbert Sosa.

Team Diehard, as they call themselves, caught the shark using a cow nose for bait.

Huron says it took 38 minutes to bring the shark in after the hook was set.

Once the shark was caught, the team took a few photos then released it back into the gulf.
