Wausau Man Catches 544 Pound Shark in California

A Wausau man now holds a new record in the world of bow fishing. Patrick Eger caught a 544 pound shark of the coast of California earlier this month.

It is the largest fish ever caught using a bow. It took Patrick nearly two hours to harvest the massive mako shark.

"Once the big one came in, we knew it was the one that we wanted. It came in and was not afraid of anything, it started sizing up the boat, hitting the boat, and we just got ready and harvested it." Eger says.

Patrick has received documentation from the Bow Fishing Association of America that he now holds the record. He is now encouraging others to go out and try the sport.
