Three 12-year-olds catch a 692-pound shark in Sarasota

SARASOTA, Fla. (WFLA.com) - Three 12-year-old boys caught a fish in Sarasota that would make a grown man jealous.

The kids reeled in a Mako shark weighing in at 692 pounds.

First thing Wednesday morning, Sam Von Duhn joined his dad and some friends on a deep sea fishing trip, and Sam was determined to get his big catch.

"Grouper,” he said. “I just think they're fun to catch, I like to eat them."

Sam and his family are from Ohio. They’re vacationing in Sarasota with some of Sam’s buddies - Tony Musca and Ryan Roberts. The group took a boat from Double Nickel Charters out to the gulf. They caught some fish here and there but then, about 26 miles out to sea, they got something else.

"My rod started bending like crazy!”
