March 6, 2008 12:00:00 AM PST
A Florida fisherman caught a trophy fish: a giant hammerhead shark.It's one of the biggest catches ever off the coast of Florida.

The shark measures more than 13 feet and weighs more than 1,000 pounds.

It took a lot of strength to reel it in and it took a lot to weigh it too.

The scale stopped working at the 1,038 pound mark.

While these kind of sharks look large and scary, the hammerhead shark usually does not attack people.
