NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - A fishing charter to celebrate one military man's impending nuptials brought in a big catch - a 14 foot tiger shark!

The bachelor party was a group from Camp Lejeune on a Fish Hook Charter boat about six miles off the shore of North Myrtle Beach.

Richard Long with Fish Hook Charters says the men used a "Rod and Reel" method and bonita fish to catch the 700 pound shark on Saturday, August 17.

Richard says they have never caught a shark this big before.

The world record Tiger shark was caught near the Cherry Grove Pier in 1964. That shark weighed in at over 1,700 pounds.
