Jaws versus bare hands — a fish tale like no other as guys grab shark by the tail

When his efforts proved useless, "We sent that bait out there," Jonathan said, pointing at Cody.

Cody ventured out into the water, about chest deep with waves rolling in.

"I got close enough to grab it by the tail," Cody said.

The shark never really made a move, and Cody started pulling it back to shore.

When Cody got the shark close enough, about knee deep, Robert and Jonathan stepped in to help drag it to the shore.

Once they got the colossal bull shark about five-feet on land, it lay still for a moment, but then started to move.

"It started opening its mouth like it was gulping for air and moving its tail," Robert said.
