BAY VILLAGE, Ohio (WTSP) -- Three 12-year-olds from Bay Village have the catch of a lifetime during a trip to Sarasota, Florida.

Wednesday, Sam Van Duhn and his two friends, Ryan Roberts and Tony Musca, were on a trip off of Longboat Pass in Florida.

A 692-pound Mako shark bit their bait, and they towed it to shore.
