A normal day at the beach quickly became a once-in-a-lifetime experience for a group of beachgoers this weekend.

PJ Braun, a man known as the “Shark Fisher,” caught a 7-foot-long sand tiger shark on the beach near 82nd Street in Sea Isle City on Saturday, according to a report from FOX 29 Philadelphia.

He said the massive catch was his “biggest” one yet.

The wild moment was caught on camera by Prospect Park Police Chief Dave Madonna, one of nearly 250 people who gathered to watch.

In the video, Braun is seen posing with the shark, dragging it back to the ocean by its tail fin, then letting it free.

The crowd erupts into applause as the shark swims away.

Braun said his top priority is the shark’s safety, ensuring it is never taken out of the water.
