Two fisherman in Mexico netted a monstrous catch quite unexpectedly this week: a 2,000 pound great white shark.

The enormous shark, which measured almost 20 feet in length, was caught up in a net cast by commercial fishermen in the Sea of Cortez on Sunday, according to Pisces Sportfishing, a website based in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

The shark was already dead when the men found it, but the fisherman, identified only as Guadalupe and Baltazar, were still overwhelmed by it.

“We were amazed and immediately realized that we had a huge, dead, great white shark, and then we thought what are we going to do?” Guadalupe told Pisces Sportfishing’s Tracy Ehrenberg.

The fishing boat had to be towed to shore with the extra weight, and more than 50 bystanders helped the men drag the dead shark onto the docks.

Pisces Sportfishing reported that the shark “fed the whole town.”
