NEW ORLEANS -- A Nantucket man who went fishing wound up wrestling with a shark.

Elliot Sudal says when he reeled in a half eaten bluefish, he picked up a shark rod he had from fishing in Florida and threw the half eaten bluefish back in.

Minutes later he reeled in what appeared to be a 7-foot sandbar shark.

Sudal ran into the surf, grabbed the shark by the tail and wrestled it to the beach.

After taking some pictures and removing the hook, he released the shark back into the surf.
