(WHDH) — A six-year-old boy from Houston caught a Great White Shark while fishing off the coast of Cape Cod recently.

Blake White was holding the fishing rod on his grandfather’s boat when he felt a huge tug.

At first he thought he reeled in a big tuna, but it was a 10 to 12 foot shark.

“Well, I did pass the rod to my dad because it was too heavy,” Blake says.

The shark was caught for 90 minutes, until Blake’s dad cut him loose.
