"I could not believe my eyes. It was a big shark."

One may spend long hours fishing and catch nothing. Some may also be lucky and catch big fish. But to catch 3-metre long shark is a different story.

This is actually what happened to Emirati fisherman Eid Ahmad Sulaiman.

It was a regular day for the ardent fisherman Sulaiman, but all of a sudden something heavy pulled down his fishing rod.

"I could not believe my eyes. It was a big shark."

"It took me long time, and with the help of my team, we managed to catch the big fish which turned out to be 350kg in weight."

Sulaiman post an image of his big catch on social media, and that went viral on social media.
