FLORIDA–A man caught an 800-lb., 11-foot mako shark recently but won’t reveal where exactly he caught it, according to WFTV.

There’s video of Joey Polk making the huge catch and then a picture someone took of him at a gas station with the shark in the back of his truck.

But, he’ll only say he caught it off the Gulf Coast. “These are spots that have been handed down from our grandfathers, to our dads, to us. We like to keep it up a secret. Maybe one day I can pass it down to my kids,” Polk told WFTV.
