Thirteen year old Alex Johnston, already a multiple world-record holder, has added another trophy to his bag.
After battling with the giant, 4.1m Tiger shark for two hours, he landed his 485kg record.
The shark was caught using Marlin chunks, captured and killed earlier, as bait.
The dead shark is most likely to be dumped at sea following its official weighing.
Numerous concerned citizens have expressed their outrage via local media outlets.
