A fisherman caught a shark on Freeport Tuesday, near the Peregrine Resort.

Ann Valdespino said the man was fishing near a sandbar about 150 yards from the beach when he caught the shark.

After snapping a few pics, Ann said he released the shark back into the water.

Shark attacks are rare on the Texas Coast but it’s a good reminder that we are swimming, surfing and fishing in their territory.
