A 37-year record has bitten the dust after a massive 1,033-pound hammerhead shark was caught this weekend in the waters off Texas City during a fishing tournament.

Tim McClellen, of Texas City, was the skilled angler who reeled in the shark, breaking the long-standing record, according to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.

The feat happened during the 55th Annual Texas City Jaycees Tackle Time Fishing Tournament on Sunday.

A photo of McClellen standing by his impressive catch was shared on Facebook by the tournament’s organizers, in which the shark is over twice as long as he is tall.
